1st Shadow of the City

Earlier this month I organized the first Shadow of the City Drink + Draw. We had about 35 people attend the event, which was hosted at Shannon Rose in Clifton, NJ.

The first hour of the event was spent socializing and free-drawing. The first activity sheet we played was an "8 Minute Draw". The objective was to choose something on your table, whether it was your beer or the ketchup bottle, and draw that object for 4 minutes, 2 minutes,  1 minute, 30 seconds, 15 seconds, and 5 seconds.

The second activity was a "Draw & Pass", where you drew on your sheet for a minute, then passed it to the next person to continue drawing upon. The sheets went around the room until they landed back with the original artist.

Watch the video below for a look at how the night went! For more information on upcoming events, please follow the ADCNJ. We have plenty of events lined up for the coming months, including a hand lettering workshop (March 13) and another Drink + Draw at Defiant Brewery (April 19).
