All Drawing, All The Time

Not one, but two open-invitation drawing sessions are going on this Saturday.

World Wide Sketch Crawl
Saturday, January 10 at 9:30am
Breugger's Bagels
1 W. Congress (corner of Congress and Stone)

Local chapters of Sketch Crawl all over the world will be putting pencil (or pen or ink brush) to paper on Saturday. Tucson's group will meet in the morning at Breugger's Bagels, then go a-sketching downtown for a few hours, and return to at Breugger's at 3:30pm to share work. You can also post your drawings to the Sketch Crawl forum, get feedback and connect with other artists, but you must register on the website in order to do so. For more info, visit the Tucson forum here. Thanks to Kerrie Robertson for passing this along!

The Drawing Studio

Here's your opportunity to experiment with something you’ve never tried. Back by popular demand, this festival offered by the very active Drawing Studio will feature four two-hour workshops in drawing. Play with just about any medium you can think of: charcoal, pastel, pen and ink, drawing on clay, graphite, scratchboard, colored pencil, paint, drawing on metal and watercolor pencil. Technical workshops will cover the conveyance of light/shadow and space in drawing. Call 620-0947 or email to find out how to sign up.
