Event: Illustrator Gathering

Generally on the third Thursday of every month from 7-9 PM – Each month be sure to email Lisa, at her email listed below, that you will be attending so she can let you know that months Schmooze’s venue. The Schmoozes are a great place for chapter illustrators to gather to share inspiration, techniques, critique current projects and enjoy the company of other illustrators of children’s books.

Here are the dates for our 2020/2021 season Schmoozes (unless cancelled due to Social Distancing): Be sure to email Lisa (email address below) as schmoozes will be off campus until we resume face-to-face on campus gatherings. She will need to email you the venue/Zoom invite until we are back at UCSD.
