Event: Illustrator Gathering

This year’s Illustrator SchmooZoom will take place online in zoom on the third Thursday of each month from 7-9 PM, except December. There is no Schmooze in December.

Each month be sure to email Lisa, at her email listed below, that you will be attending so she can send you the Zoom invite. The Schmoozes are a great place for chapter illustrators to gather to share inspiration and enjoy the company of other illustrators of children’s books. We will also exchange ideas, tips on materials, etc. and critique work.

So stay connected and share your creativity. Join Us!

Here are the dates for our 2020/2021 season Schmoozes: Be sure to email Lisa (email address below) as she will need to email you the Zoom invite each month.

Sept 17 – We will play a creative sketching game, where we assign a character, item or animal with an emotion or action or both. Fun!
