I like things that are properly titled. The Drink n Draw events at the Majestic Theatre here in Corvallis are what they say they are: you drink, you draw. Mostly you draw. If you don’t know what to draw, Michael from the Drawing Board provides prompts in the form of a deck of cards from games that feature words. Or, if you’re in a drawing people phase at the moment, your fellow sketchers become unknowing subjects. Wine and beer and soft drinks are available, and folks even bring cupcakes and crackers… sweet!
I was surprised and pleased at the turnout, particularly at the mix of ages. And it sounds like Michael has been trying out some interesting approaches — I’m sorry I missed the event in May which I hear featured someone in costume posing. I hope he tries that approach again, it was really fun when I did something similar in London. So I’ll be going back, first Wednesdays of the month. Cheers!
