What we're about

We are creative people and artists getting together over a cup of coffee and just draw - draw each other, draw people around in their context, draw faces, movements, surroundings, animals or plants ... We are meeting in public space, like public places, restaurants, bars, museums. We make it our own place and share it with the community. We use our favorite medium like pencils, watercolor, art pen, markers, iPad etc. or try something new and get inspired from the others. It's about being curious, meeting creative people, learning from each other, having fun and sketching what we see. It's NOT about teaching how to draw; it's rather about learning how to see. We are always open to new drawers, having new ideas.
