The geology sketching class offered by the Art Alliance, in partnership with AWG, is fast approaching. This class will be a great opportunity to sharpen your sketching skills whether it is for outcrops or thin sections and anything in between. Additionally, this is a great opportunity for professors, graduate students, and undergraduates to interact in a more casual setting. All are welcome, but we must limit the class size to 20 people.
Thanks to those who have already expressed interest! We are very excited about this event and hope you are as well!
We now need official commitments from participants. If you’ve already signed up, and are still interested, please indicate your intent to attend the class by adding your email address to the google doc by Friday Aug 19.
There are also 3 spots left! If you have not yet signed up and are interested, add your name and email address to the google doc . We will also maintain a waitlist in case there is more interest than spaces, so if all the participant spots are filled when you go to sign up, add your name to the waitlist. The waitlist will be used to fill spaces if anyone backs out.
If you’re ready to take the final step in securing your seat, please provide payment via cash or check (made out to AWG) to either Claire Cleveland (Deike 236, email@example.com) or Judi Sclafani (Deike 438, firstname.lastname@example.org). AWG is able to subsidize $40 per attendee, making the cost to participants $35. For those who find $35 a stretch, let us know and we will do what we can to make this class affordable. Conversely, if you can afford a little more and are willing to pay the full amount ($75) to help defray the costs to those for whom this might be prohibitive, we would greatly appreciate that! The sooner you can turn in your payment, the better! We are setting the final day for payment on September 2nd. After this time, people on the waitlist will be offered the spot of anyone who hasn’t paid.
When: Classes are on Tuesdays from 7pm to 9pm on September 13th & 27th and October 11th & 25th.
Where: The Art Alliance of Central Pennsylvania, 818 Pike Street, Lemont, PA 16851.
How to get there: We will arrange a carpool, but there is also a CATA bus that services Lemont. Bus route (M) between campus and Lemont http://catabus.com/ServiceSchedules/CATABUS/CommunityService/M%20Route/Mroutemap.html
What to bring: Pencils, eraser, and something to sketch on such as your field notebook, sketchpad, or other paper. If you are willing to bring samples of your sketches to share with the class, even better!
Please let us know if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you there!
