Must RSVP by 5pm today for tomorrow's Sketch Crawl

February 6th Sketch Crawl at the Zoo

Space is limited for tomorrow's Sketch Crawl at the RainForest in the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo

If you are planning on attending, you must RSVP by 5pm today in order to reserve a space. The Zoo has graciously allowed our group of sketchers to come into the RainForest free of charge. Only those participating in the Sketch Crawl get in free though (it pays to be creative ;). But you must RSVP by 5 today to get in.

RSVP to and let me know if you are coming (if you haven't already).

*This is a rarity that we have limited space for a crawl.

The Zoo's Rainforest!

I am very excited about this month's sketch crawl! The Cleveland MetroParks Zoo is an amazing place to visit, but it is one of those spots that also makes for absolutely unique sketching opportunities. Drawing buildings is one thing....drawing animals is something entirely different.

One of our stalwart sketchers has been able to grant access for our group to sketch the Rainforest. This location is only open to those taking part in the sketch bring your pad and utensils and join in the fun! Due do limited space, please RSVP to me if you are planning on attending to make sure there is room (

Hope to see you all there!
