Chat and Draw
An informal gathering to chat and draw and meet new people. All skill levels are welcome and you are free to draw whatever you like. No ideas? We have a selection of art books and magazines for creative reference. Please bring your own paper and materials. For those of you looking to deepen your practise we also do group based sketching under timed conditions. These could include still life, trying different mediums, sketching from the imagination, exploring different art styles etc. If you have a theme you'd like to focus on please share it with us! We are also happy to offer one on one tuition if you need help in your sketching journey. The aim is to explore new ways of working, share techniques and expand our drawing experience. What time: 7.30 PM officially, but you are free to come and go as you please. We will aim to finish at 10. The pub closes at 11-ish. Where we are: The long table in the conservatory at the back. Look for sketchbooks! Facilities: the pub is really friendly, serves good food and drinks and the staff reserve our spot for the evening. Please support our patrons!

What we're about

Welcome to Drawing Club Cheltenham!

This is the group that brings together drawing, meeting people and sharing skills. What we're about is simply a relaxed atmosphere for sketching enthusiasts to get together and share their passion.

The event takes place every week at the same time and place. All skill levels are welcome and there is no formal instruction; just a creative social setting to chat, draw and meet new people. Our aim is to provide a platform for people of all ages, backgrounds and proficiency levels to start, develop or keep up with their drawing skills which otherwise might be taken over by busy every-day lives.

So bring along your materials and come join us for a pint and a doodle. We look forward to meeting you!
