Really excited to be announcing a collaboration with a local venue, The Boileroom in Guildford.
We will be running a monthly Drink and Draw session! Hopefully these sessions will be a positive, and inspiring place to meet with other members of the local creative scene. Share ideas, share techniques and industry tips and, of course, share a drink or three.
The first session will be Monday 6th of Feb 2107, 6:30pm and from then on we'll be aiming for the first Monday of each month - or as close to it as the venues schedule will allow. It will be FREE entry, but we'll be taking donations which will fund future drawing events, things like: life drawing, artist tutorials, drawing trips, and more.
Now, this may not seem relevant to some readers of this blog (specifically those based outside of Guildford.) BUT of late, there are huge parts of the world that seem darker, scarier, and more threatening, and I think events like this are a direct response to those changes.
I want to extend a challenge, a call to action: start a group, join a group, spread your passion, meet people, create good things. In response to the threat of a darker world, make YOUR world a little brighter. It may seem like a small resistance in the 'grand scheme' of things, but many small good things can easily outweigh the bad. You never know who you might help, or how you might help them.
