Kate Lewis grew to love art through her passion for math. After studying accounting for years at the University of Florida, she graduated with a BA in 2010, and immediately decided to shift to the business of illustrating. To chronicle trips taken around the world while backpacking, she found herself drawn towards buildings that best represented the experiences she was having and digesting in other cultures, and things began to spiral from there. Using what she learned about calculated angles, organization, numbers, and lines, she felt like she was working the same part of her brain to draw as she was solving complicated equations, so she ran with it and never looked back.
Drink and Draw is a low-key drop-in social workshop devoted to drawing practices. There are no pretensions, no prerequisites, and newcomers are always welcome. Bring a sketchbook and basic drawing materials, and invite your friends! Drink & Draw occurs the first Wednesday of every other month and features a special theme and a guest artist. Admission to Drink & Draw is a $10 suggested donation. The event is BYOB, but we do have some wine and beer available with a donation.
