Interested in started a GNSI group in the FL panhandle

Hello,

I'm interested in starting a group for illustrators and artists that focuses on nature and science here in Panama City, FL. A GNSI group would be great, but it doesn't nessesarily have to have the guild attached. I would just love to have other people to draw with and review work with, but I haven't found anything here that meets this need. If anyone has advice on starting a drawing group from scratch, I'm all ears. I've never done this kind of thing before, and would appreciate any help. Thanks so much!
