Drink & Draw [VIRTUAL]: Black Lives Matter Protest Signs & Solidarity Art

Please join Spudnik Press for a night of making signs, posters, banners and graphics to support the Black Lives Matter protests, and speak out against police violence. We will use whatever supplies we have on hand to help sound the alarm that BLACK LIVES MATTER! From cardboard protest signs we can hang in our windows, to digital graphics we can use on social media and e-mail signatures, let’s fill our community with displays of solidarity! These can be political slogans, portraits celebrating Black leaders, memorials honoring victims of police violence… not sure what you want to say? Come and get inspired!

This week, donations to our Venmo Tip Jar (@spudnikpress) will be evenly split with the Chicago Freedom School, to support Chicago youth who are organizing for racial justice and social change.

To Register for the Zoom Event, e-mail: anders@spudnikpress.org.

Drink & Draw [Virtual] is a low-key drop-in social workshop devoted to staying creative from home. There are no pretensions and newcomers are always welcome, so invite your friends to join! Each Drink & Draw [Virtual] features a new guest artist and a new theme or project that uses pencil, paper, and everyday household supplies. Don’t have a sketchbook? Hosts will help you improvise. Find us on Zoom, a free app for your phone or computer. And of course: BYOB!
