Special Meetup: DrawFest 2013!

Celebrate the joy of drawing! The 2nd Annual DrawFest is a Santa Cruz event promoting drawing as a way to make the world a better place. Join the fun! Mark your calendar for October 4, 5-10pm at the Scribbles Institute. Draw out your inner artist! Free activities, demos, exhibits, lessons, refreshments, and more! This special, nightlong event is in conjunction with the Santa Cruz First Friday Art Tour. Don't miss our biggest Meetup event of the year!

Please visit the new DrawFest website!

If you have a special drawing talent you'd like to share at DrawFest we'd love to have you participate by doing a demo during the night. If you'd like to participate please contact us here:

It will be great to see the usual crew as well as new faces from Meetup! If any of you want to help out with serving refreshments and facilitating drawing activities please let Rob know via email. Thanks! See you on October 4th!

We're growing in numbers! Santa Cruz Drawing Meetup: Do you enjoy drawing or curious to learn more about it? The Santa Cruz Learning-to-Draw Meetup takes place in a friendly, creative studio environment. Share your ideas or phobias about drawing. Experiment with materials. Enjoy a conversation over some pencil doodles or dive into some charcoal sketches from life. This is a great opportunity for adults to meet fellow sketchers (or future fellow sketchers) and have an afternoon of creative fun. It's free. We have plenty of drawing materials on hand. If you've got a sketchbook, bring it along. Refreshments are served.

Drawing Improves Your World: New Drawing Lab sessions are always forming for adults and kids at the Scribbles Institute in Santa Cruz, California. Learn how to use drawing as a tool for work, school, and enjoyment. All ability levels welcome! Our beginner courses are perfect for people who think they can't draw but have the desire to learn basic skills and apply them to everyday life. Our classes and workshops are perfect for artists who want to brush up on their observational sketching skills.

Please visit our new Drawing Lab website!

The Scribbles Institute is located at 303 Potrero #59 (Old Sash Mill), Santa Cruz. [masked]  To view student work please visit our website.

      Great drawing with you, Dorothy! You got into an excellent sketching rhythm and put together some accurate sketches. And thanks for the cool pencil sharpener—works really well! Hope to draw with you soon!

    Very fun and relaxed atmosphere So nice to be welcomed and offered a seat right away. I drew a crab and a portrait and felt so successful. Rob taught me to hold a pencil and was very encouraging. I love the Scribbles Institute ( and now drawing, too)!

    I'll only attend in spirit as live in Arkansas. Unless of course I decide to take a road trip. Lol. But I'll still enjoy postings and interaction on the web.
