AIA Las Vegas Urban Sketchers – Rhyolite Ghost Town

Grab your sketchbook and drawing tools for a unique art adventure in a Rhyolite Ghost Town! Join us on Saturday, November 11 from 10 am to 12 pm as we capture the abandoned ruins and rugged natural beauty of this historic gold mining town.

Rhyolite rose to prominence in the early 1900s during Nevada’s bullfrog mining district boom. Today it stands a haunting ghost town filled with remnants of a lively past. We’ll sketch crumbling buildings, old mining equipment and the rugged Mojave landscape.

Don’t forget some water, something to sit on, a hat and sunscreen!

No need to RSVP, all skill levels are welcome! Bring your preferred sketching supplies to document this evocative ghost town before it faces back into the desert. Be inspired by the rich history and pure western spirit of rhyolite. Let your art breathe new life into this unforgettable frontier town. Don’t forget your supplies!
