Minnesota SCBWI Como Zoo trip



Well here is a repost from "Christina Rodriguez" who is the illustration coordinator for "Minnesota SCBWI" It looks like it is going to be another great time at the Como Zoo for the annual Zoo Sketch. Here is the info and hope to see you there! I know I will be.

Date: Saturday, July 11, 2009
Time: 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Location: Como Park Zoo and Conservatory, 1225 Estabrook Drive, Saint Paul, MN 55103
Registration: FREE (Voluntary donation to Como Park Zoo is $2)

Pack a lunch, your art or writing supplies, and some sunscreen! We’re going to spend the day gathering inspiration from the various creatures and activities that the Como Park Zoo and Conservatory has to offer. Sketch, paint, write a children’s poem, come up with a new character or story idea, or practice a creative technique….Go WILD with your imagination!

Meet at the Como Zoo Entrance at 10am. It is located at the Visitor Center. We will share our work and maybe even do some brainstorming when we break for lunch. This is a great chance to mingle with some of your fellow Minnesota SCBWI members!

For Como Park Zoo directions (including a map), visit the Como Park website. We hope to see you there!
