Our local Sketchcrawl group got together for the 34th International drawing marathon today. The Tallahassee Museum of History and Natural Science, one of our favorite and most inspirational sketchspots, hosted the group--offering free admission and a gallery exhibit of our sketches. Free admission to the park on Jan 29th after 2 pm and Feb 11th all day to anyone who comes to view the exhibit. Thanks Tallahassee Museum!
Participants today included, Jennifer Clinard, Mark Fletcher, Bill Otersen, Barbara Psimas, Mary Sterner Lawson, and our newest member Tim White. Welcome aboard, Tim!
