The International Center for Gibbon Studies (ICGS) in Santa Clarita, California has agreed to host a private event for artists interested in sketching the live animals. Presented by Women In Animation Los Angeles on Saturday, September 19, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., the trip will include a lectured tour and a rare opportunity to practice life drawing of more than 30 animals. "Gibbons are fast-moving small primates that are active in the morning and slow down during the afternoon, so the day will satisfy quick sketch to intense study for all artists," said event coordinator Susan Palmer. The cost per person is $8.00 and pre-paid RSVPs are due by Monday, September 14. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or send your payment (checks to Women in Animation LA) with name, address and phone number to Women in Animation/LA, Attn: Susan Palmer, 1380 Midvale Ave. #304, Los Angeles, CA 90024.
