Depending on your talent!

What the...?? An artistic event for AOC? From hiking many trails for many years in Georgia, I have came across many beautiful scenery, I have often find myself thinking this would be a great place to sketch or paint, since most of the time I am hiking with the group so I never stopped to sketch or paint.

So this is a great opportunity to express your hidden artistic talent, if you an artist, used to be an artist, interested in doing art with the group, this event is perfect for you. Oh by the way, we wont be critiquing your work so you dont have to worry, this is a no-pressure, just fun art day.

Bring out your favorite medium, pencil, charcoal, watercolor, acrylics, oils, etc... dont forget your sketch book or your canvas, and a chair to sit in.

Well be visiting several scenic place in the park every couple of hours or so, and we will have a group lunch, bring some food to share with your friends.

Since this is not your usual AOC event, if anyone have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
