Southport Press/Sketchcrawl Meetings, Monday

April 22, 2010 at 10:56 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Head over to Carolyn’s Coffee Connection, 1351 52nd Street, Kenosha, on Monday, April 26 for a couple gatherings to excite your upper lumbar and tickle your fancy, too. 

First up is Sketchcrawl Kenosha at 6:00 PM.  Sketchcrawl is a worldwide event, taking place from Berlin to Barcelona to Kenosha, in which artists and writers take to the streets to capture the environment that surrounds them into words and pictures.  Sound like fun?  Make plans to attend on Monday night to learn about the Spring Crawl, taking place on May 15.  For more on Sketchcrawl, visit www.sketchcrawl.com.  Also stop by www.urbansketchers.com

At 6:30 PM, sit down (or remain standing) for a gathering by Southport Press.  In late March, Southport Press gathered ideas from Racine and Kenosha citizens and is now ready to begin to transform those ideas into fun projects.    Southport Press is the small press publishing division of Kenosha Community Media, Inc., www.kenoshamedia.org

These activities are free and open to the public.   Please join us!
