Drawing Bored

A booze-friendly workshop of drawing exercises to music

A safe place for beginners and experienced artists alike to groove, scribble and giggle,

to motivate your creative urges and make marks to an eclectic playlist

In Autumn 2020, a summer of Covid lockdown had fried what little concentration I had left at my disposal.

I devised the first Drawing Bored workshop at Awenek Studios using the short, fun, drawing exercises that had helped me to do some drawings during this time, using groove-heavy music for motivation and that extra driving dopamine hit. 

As more lockdowns ensued we found a new home on Zoom, allowing people from all locations to join in with the fun from the comfort of their pyjamas. 

Drawing Bored is for anyone who draws, but who doesn't do it enough, or anyone who doesn't draw, but would like to try.

It is a workshop of timed drawing exercises to music, and the perfect stress-free, silly, grab-a-drink-and-a-pen opportunity to scribble and giggle.

All abilities are welcome and you can turn up to whichever sessions you like without missing out. Over the year and a half we ran on Zoom, I think it's fair to say everyone had a bloody good time (if they didn't, they weren't telling me) doing some drawings they wouldn't have otherwise tried.

In 2022, Drawing Bored is returning to the world beyond the computer screen, beginning with two sessions at Garrison Gallery at Maker Heights. Cocktails, drawing and lots of fun will be had from 7pm on the 21 July and 8 September, with more dates to follow.
