Drink & Draw : One Year

Drink and Draw returns 17th May to Town Square, marking our first anniversary in our new home. A massive thanks to everyone that makes the event possible, from our sponsors, Inkmonkey Art Supplies and Framewerk to our willing hosts Town Square. Big shout outs to our DJs Drone Mansions for supplying our monthly soundtrack to proceedings.

For those of you out there new to Drink & Draw, here’s how it goes. Grab a beer, wine or cocktail of choice. Sit. This is life drawing, but no nakedness of course. I frequently ask for models from the crowd or LOFT buddies to pose for a series of drawings. We start with 2 minute poses, moving up to 5 minutes then 10 minutes, sitting or standing.

There’s a break then we change it up a little, asking attendees to draw the person, next to or opposite them. After an hour and a half or so, you are asked to submit your favourite drawing to be voted for. The most votes wins first prize, a voucher from Town Square and their drawing framed, by Framewerk. Runner up gets the voucher from Inkmonkey. Everyone gets that deeply sought appreciation from their peers and we all have a good time. Hopefully see you there!
