Here’s the plan:

Dare2Draw's main mission is to help provide networking, mentoring and promoting opportunities, along with resources, for artists of all levels, while raising money for artists in need, with the art done by our guests. We have art demos, artist panels, action models, drawing contests and great prizes provided by our sponsors.

Established artists and arts organizations meet in a supportive setting, putting the art back in sequential art. We bring together professional artists and also showcase new artists to keep an eye out for!

For Artists, By Artists: Together We’re Stronger!

Our next Dare2DrawTV shot will be on THURSDAY, October  8th at NYCC! 4:00pm - Walt Simonson! 

Tickets  here:

No cover, thanks to Jerry's Artarama!

Hope to see you, then!
