What we're about

This group is for anyone who likes to draw. Unlike other artists like musicians, actors or dancers... people who like to create drawings often do so alone. Once finished they tend to hide their sketch pad somewhere and few people get the pleasure of seeing their work. There's nothing wrong with that but it could also be a fun social activity just like it was when we were toddlers in art class.
All levels and styles are welcome and you could use any medium you like (pencils, charcoal, crayons etc.). We meet weekly in a public place like a coffee-shop or a park. Then you draw anything you like. It could be a bowl of fruit, a person modelling or a dog nearby. There are no teachers or prizes. Just sketching and friends having a wee blether.

Kelvingrove sketching and drawing Meetup

Needs a location

About our group: we are a bunch of artists of mixed ability who learn from each other: we usually meet each week, drawing and then showing our recent work to each other.

The venue of meeting usually changes each week, although we see our base at Kelvingrove Art Gallery. So check messages below for current planned location of meetup. Some premises may need you to book in advance, if so the link will be posted to let you do that.

There is no charge, nor direct teaching, but you can always ask for help. We have people from all over come to join, all five continents, so don't feel left out! You will be warmly welcomed.

If you have signed up and RSVP'ed to this event, it is helpful to let us know if you have changed plans, so that we are not kept waiting unnecessarily. If you are running late, don't worry just jump in and start drawing, and meet us afterwards.

Remember to post your best work to inspire others!

Let's do this!
