D is for Drawing MeetUp

drawing meetup 1 Every Wednesday at 2 pm, I sit down and practice my drawing in a bistro.  It’s an “appointment” with my drawing.

A  supportive bunch of  people  who would also like to improve their drawing join me. It’s a fun, casual, no talent/no skill/no pressure/NO CRITIQUE opportunity to hang out and draw together.

My motto is: DOODLING TOTALLY COUNTS! If we doodle, we win!!!

I’m working through some exercises from the book Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain, some people follow along, some use other books, some use no book.

After just a few weeks, my skill has improved — certainly more than it did during the past couple of years when owning the book without opening it did not make much of a dent in my level of, shall we say, drawing suckage.  😉

I’ve had some great conversations with members of the group. And possibly best of all, we’ve had a lot of fun!

You are invited! If you are in Oregon, you could come in person. If you can’t manage that, you could participate “remotely” via Facebook or Twitter or even just on your own.  It feels supportive to know other people are practicing at the very same time. (No pressure!)

You can get the details about the Wednesday Drawing at 2:00 at our Creative Hillsboro MeetUp site. But you don’t even have to register. Just show up at Primrose and Tumbleweeds in downtown Hillsboro. Bring your own pencil and paper. And a friend, if you’d like.  See you there!

This is day 4 or the letter D post in the April AtoZ Challenge for bloggers. Sign up for updates and never miss a letter!

    1. Hi Charlotte! The meetup platform makes it pretty easy to start your own thing. I felt a need, someone else suggested it would be a good activity, so as soon as I knew there were two of us I went ahead and voila! A whole group magically appears!
