Drawing Club began in the early 2000s when a group of nerds gathered together once a month to eat pizza and play image-making games inspired by . It has since evolved into a community-building movement of doodling as an intellectual practice.
Drawing Club workshops…ahem, playshops…are packed with idea-generating activities that'll un-train your brain to stop thinking so much and surrender to the power of the pen. Perfect for artists with writer's block, writers with artist's block, emerging and retired cartoonists, or those who just want to get their draw on.
We also make zines. Loads of beautiful zines.
