Details

Dive Bar Doodles, Sketch Sessions, and music art ...

Every other Monday night I get my drawing practice in .. come out & sit with me at Radio Bar and work on your own images! You can sketch your own projects, work on random still life setups, capture bar scenes, or use music its self as a model of sound to translate into a 2-dimensional image. When you need a break, you can always go downstairs & dance for a while. There's an awesome DJ (DJ Ball-D) as well as $5 well drinks and beer & shot specials (Bartender Gabriel). But if you're not into intoxication, that's ok too.

Please bring your own supplies and a book light. (you won't be able to see if you don't bring a light with you). Electrical outlets are hard to find so come pre-charged. Outside food is ok to bring. I'll be either downstairs by the DJ booth or upstairs in a dimly lit fenced lounge with pictures of boxers on the wall.

All skill levels encouraged. 21+ only. Suggested donations of $5-10 (Pay here, Venmo @CottonTurner or just bring cash)

Please RSVP! If I don't see anyone has signed up, I might decide to sketch somewhere else. However always feel free to go on your own as well. [masked] text me, Yolanda, with any questions & if you need to confirm.

Note: This has changed from a weekly event to a bi-weekly event happening on the 1st & 3rd Mondays of the month.

Dive Bar Doodles, sketch sessions, and music art is held every other Monday night at Radio in Oakland, CA. Designed to give artists space to practice skills & access to the joyful development that comes from creative output while also giving the community an opportunity to join in on the fun. This allows us to support each other as we seek a creative outlet for mental/emotional wellness, for experimentation with visual expressions with music, for practicing general drawing skills, for music interpretations & dance therapy, and to observe the cultural underbelly of Oakland nightlife.
