We started our day off with a sketch session along the river walk before heading off to a boat tour sponsored by CAF (Chicago Architecture Foundation). During the boat tour we saw many of the skyscrapers that make up the beautiful Chicago skyline. The students experienced many of the works by SOM, Jeanne Gang, and of course Mies van der Rohe.
After such a warm and humid morning, the students had the opportunity to visit the Art Institute of Chicago. They were able to spend a few hours sketching and viewing the new exhibit by Paul Gauguin.
