$100, lunch included

Come on a guided sketching tour of the historic Ox-Bow campus. In the morning students will tour the grounds and sketch in their desired location. As an alternative, students may compose and shoot photos. In the afternoon, we will work in the meadow and make a finished color drawing of your favorite sketch. All supplies will be provided.
