Backyard Travel Sketchbook

Getting excited about exploring your world this summer? Sketching on your summer staycation can be a time to investigate your backyard, neighborhood, or old travel photos. Local artist, Mona Fairbanks, will lead us in exploring materials to use for your sketchbook and show local inspirations to get you started.
