What is The Sketch Crawl?

Each artist is given a specially designed tin which contains a map of 5 locations, 5 5x7 postcard sheets of mixed media or watercolor paper that has been stamped to ensure all work is done on the day of the event.  They then have 6 hours to complete the sketches of the 5 locations.
