Illustration Fridays

Next date: March 6th


Every first and third Friday, drop in at GAC between 4-6 PM for a free, casual open-studio session. Each week, an artist volunteer will set up tables and materials and introduce the Illustration Friday topic of the week (a one-word prompt.) You then pick up pencil or brush and respond to the prompt however you want to. As you work, you'll enjoy the company and inspiration of your fellow doodlers, as well as music, and drinks .

 

Open to all. More info
