What we're about

Drawing Brooklyn is a community of over 3700 members who love to draw. It is FREE to become a member of this group. This group is a part of The Drawing New York community.

Drawing Brooklyn helps people make "real and tangible progress" with their drawings whether they are absolute beginners, intermediate sketchers or professional artists.

We meet several times a week to draw from a live model. We have both instructed and uninstructed classes.

Drawing Brooklyn also creates original content for museums and cultural institutions in New York City including The Morgan Library, The Museum of The City of New York and The Museum of Arts and Design.

We hope this group provides both a place to practice your drawing as well as learn about exciting drawing session and exhibition throughout New York.

This digital painting workshop is valuable for all artists, regardless of medium. A basic understanding of painting is desired but not necessary to participate in this class. There will be demonstrations in composition, shape, color, and lighting design, and much more.
