Join us July 13th from 1-3pm for our latest session of Sketching Stories—our guided drawing series where observation of our present and reflecting on our past come together. In this drawing class, you will be guided through an observational, or life drawing of real artifacts from Varner Hogg Plantation and discover the real stories of the people who used them.

In this session, we will uncover hidden stories of cooking at the Patton Plantation. While learning to sketch from real 19th century cookware in the plantation kitchen, we will explore the role of Judah Smith, an enslaved woman who cooked, made herbal remedies, and lived at the Patton Plantation.

This class is open to absolute beginners and experienced artists looking to hone their skills. All materials will be provided, but you are welcome to bring your own sketchbook and drawing tools if you prefer. 

This event is free with your $10 admission to the site. (Seniors, veterans, teachers & first responders' admission is $8) This class is recommended for adults and children over 12. Children under 12 must be accompanied by a guardian.
