Thanks for your interest in the Silver Spring Library Drawing Group (SSLDG)! If you enjoy drawing, talking with other people about art, and listening to music, come participate in our weekly events! For more information, please see the FAQ below.


FAQ


What is SSLDG?

We are a group of artists who meet for two separate purposes:

- Draw, share ideas about art and how we tackle art-related problems, and meet other artists

- Show our work, get group feedback, and use it to make projects to improve and get group feedback


Is this Meetup a class? 

No, but it is a group where artists can receive authentic feedback on their work and make new art each month.


What is the Meetup like?

The meeting format works this way:

- Show & Tell (first Thursday of the month), meets in study room 3-01 on the third floor

Artists show their work for five minutes and share their artistic goals, receive feedback, devise a new project based on the feedback that will push them to improve. The group provides 5-10 minutes of feedback. In the next two weeks, they create new art in preparation for feedback in Progress Report, which is the third Thursday of the month.

- Free Draw (second Thursday of the month), meets in an available study room

Participants draw, talk about art, listen to music, and come and go as they please. Other members can work on the upcoming MeetUp. Sometimes people hang out in the library afterwards and keep drawing. It all depends on who's there and what they want to do.

- Progress Report (third Thursday of the month), meets in study room 3-01 on the third floor

Artists who have attended Show & Tell return and share the projects that they have created over the past two weeks. They have five minutes to discuss their work and what they learned in the process. The other group members who have made projects provide 5-10 minutes of feedback. Artists who complete new projects can have them featured in the MeetUp group page (and also have new work to show for the experience!).

- Free Draw (last Thursday of the month), meets in an available study room

We close out the month with another casual MeetUp. Participants draw, talk about art, listen to music, and come and go as they please. They can also make new work in preparation for next month's Show & Tell.


Should I bring anything with me?

Yes. Bring your own materials, i.e. your paper of choice, as well as your pens / pencils / materials of choice.


How do I know if this group is a good fit for me?

Making art interests you to the extent that you do it on your own time, whether personally or professionally.


Three final points about membership:

- Membership requests from anonymous accounts will be denied.

- Attendees who are antagonistic or otherwise inappropriate will be banned.

- Members who join but never attend / repeatedly no show may be removed at SSLDG's discretion.
