What we're about

Welcome to Drawing Club Edinburgh!

https://m.facebook.com/groups/232366487321006

This is the group that brings together drawing*, meeting people and sharing skills. The event will take place every week.

There won't be formal instruction, just a nice atmosphere to share ideas and provide a platform for people of all ages, backgrounds and proficiency levels to start, develop or keep up with their drawing skills/projects which otherwise might be taken over by every-day busy lives and easily left in the back of a drawer :)

Bring along your own drawing materials and come join us for a pint and a doodle, everyone is welcome!

* or anything that counts as a visual art! Other mediums are welcome, just remember that we often meet in pubs so it's not exactly a workshop.

This is a sister group of the Drawing Club in Bristol - https://www.meetup.com/Draw-Club-Bristol/
Same thing, different city. We're expanding ;)

Facebook page coming soon.

Upcoming events (5+)

Chat and draw outdoors + FOOD + games!

The Meadows

We're trying to raise some funds to cover the yearly meetup fees (yep, meetup charges the organisers), come along and help us out! There will be FOOD and perhaps some games :) All donations are entirely at your discretion and it's not required, especially if it's your first time. PS. there will be non-alcoholic bevvies. If you fancy something else, BYO. The idea is to run the event outside, weather permitting, in the meadows near the Pavilion Cafe (see map). If it's miserable outside, I will send an email out to everyone with an update. Event Description: An informal gathering to chat and draw. There will be no instruction and you will be free to draw whatever you like! Please bring your own drawing materials, although there might be some spares to go around. RSVP to attend, and remember to cancel if you cannot come. What time: 7 PM officially, but come and go as you please. People tend to have different goals and projects, so the meeting generally goes on until there's someone around, which is generally 2-3 hours. Feedback and suggestions are super welcome! If you'd rather send us anonymous feedback, or something happened and you'd like to notify us, you can do so through: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/ZJX8DCB What to bring: Any art materials you might need Inspiration! Feel free to work on any project, or if you're not sure, you could bring along an art book or two, magazines, comics...

Prophecy- Peter Howson Documentary

Filmhouse

From conception to completion the story of an oil painting and its subsequent sale. An unflinching examination of the intention and techniques of the artist Peter Howson, as he creates his monumental, apocalyptic painting; Prophecy. I'm pretty sure tickets will still be available on the day but you might want to book in advance to avoid disappointment. The film starts at 18.15 so try and arrive before then, I'll aim to be there for at least 18.00 if not earlier (I'll update on the day) Running time 82 minutes https://www.filmhousecinema.com/showing/prophecy
