Mappy Hour is a nationwide movement to bring adventure-loving city-dwellers together and help one another get outside through monthly bar-talks and trips. Want to learn how to kayak? You're sure to meet someone who's out on the water every weekend. Planning your first backpacking trip? There's might even be someone drinking a beer next to you who's hiked the AT.
This month's speaker, Julia Kuo, is a Taiwanese-American illustrator who has worked with the New York Times, Google, and Science Friday. She has also been an artist-in-resident with Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity (juliakuo.com/banff-national-park), co-created "The Curious Artist: Drawing Trees and Leaves" (juliakuo.com/the-curious-artist), and, most recently, illustrated "Heroism Begins with Her" (juliakuo.com/heroism-begins-with-her).
She'll be talking through her process for landscape, travel, and nature sketching and we'll take some time to practice. Bring your favorite sketchbook and pens, or we'll have some for you to use.
