    SketchTribe Santa Cruz (formerly Santa Cruz Drawing Meetup) is for anyone who wants to learn about drawing. Our tribe includes absolute beginners, professional artists, curious doodlers, designers, engineers, teachers, moms, dads, and kids. We’re united by our passion to improve our skills, share knowledge and have an outrageously fun time drawing together. And we'd love to have you join us.
