Drink and Draw

The 1st Tuesday of every month, Rachel's Drink and Draw sessions are a fantastic, relaxing and friendly atmosphere to try your hands at drawing along with a cheeky drink or two!

Each month, you and your friends can enjoy a humorous experience of drawing the chosen theme along with being led by Rachel. Heck you can even have a chance to win a prize!

A little nervous? Don't be!

No drawing experience is required, just a desire to have fun!

Bring your supplies along and enjoy this guided class in a very relaxed environment.

Materials You Will Need

Paper

Start your new skill by investing in a sketch book (a decent one!) mid range is fine, it doesn't need to be an expensive one but go with one you feel drawn too!

Rachel recommends a multi purpose sketch book where you can use other mediums like pastels, watercolour pencils, pen and charcoal.

Alternatively you can just bring plain paper and 'have a go'.

Pencils

A variety of sketching pencils are great to explore with. Ranging from

6b,4b,2b,b,hb,h,2h,4h,6h

(Please Note: these refer to how soft or dense the lead is and will create different outcomes within your drawing.)

You can pick up a basic sketching set that contains a variety of pencils pretty much anywhere where there is stationary or art supplies.

Others recommend fancy none sharpening ones like these.

Remember to have a pencil eraser, and sharpener if needed or again a fancy eraser people use are here.
