When: Saturday, Sept 30th, 2-4 pm, with Pau Hana afterwards at Gordon Biersch Restaurant


Where: R/V Falkor, the Schmidt Ocean Institute research vessel (ship will be docked at a pier, location will be emailed to registered participants)


What: This is a free event for SCBWI members and non-members to visit a ship dedicated to science on the seas. Writers and illustrators of all levels are welcome to sketch and scribble observations, conversations, ideas, creative inspirations. Bring a sketchbook or journal you can record in while standing and be prepared for quick notes and sketches as we tour the 272 foot (82.90 m) ship.



Kirsten Carlson was Artist-at-Sea aboard the Falkor earlier this year, she has arranged a special tour for SCBWI members and will include a quick summary of what it means to be an artist-at-sea. The tour will focus on the science program as well as the tools, equipment that Schmidt Ocean Institute gives scientists access to while aboard their ship during research cruises.
