Trying to find your way to Grandma’s house for Thanksgiving? Well put away your GPS! Rhode Island’s favorite cartographer Jason Newton is here to present a super fun one-hour mapmaking session focusing on illuminating a map of the world. Simple mapmaking techniques will be used to create a colorful, illustrated, and useful ‘sketch’ map. Basic concepts of geography and cartography will be discussed. All materials will be provided.
