What is a recent or memorable dream you’ve had? What would it look like if you drew it? What do animals dream about? How can you put to paper your abstract thoughts and surreal ideas?
We invite you to explore your wildest dreams at our June Drink & Draw! Using found imagery, a variety of art utensils and mark making techniques, guest artist Vanessa Sanchez will guide us through fun and thoughtful drawing exercises that will explore creative approaches to depicting some of our weirdest dreams and imaginative ideas!
Vanessa Ann Sanchez received her BFA in Painting at the University of Illinois at Chicago. She is currently the Director of Yollocalli Arts Reach, a member of Instituto Grafico de Chicago, and is one of the lead organizers for Villapalooza, the Little Village Music Fest. Her recent work of zines, prints and paintings have focused on feminism, magic realism, and motherhood.
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.
