Winter Break Activities

Over the break, we were thinking about getting together to possibly sketch at a park, zoo, mall, etc. If anyone has any other ideas, be sure to send me an email. I'll be posting about anything we're planning here, and also probably calling for invites if we think of something.

Happy Holidays!
