Art Meetup: Open Art/Art Thursdays Sketch And Doodle Night, Cape Town
Open Art Cape Town is hosting a doodle night meetup as part of Observatory's monthly Art Thursdays events. It will be the first of what is hoped to be many Art Thursdays meetups for local doodlers and illustrators.
The doodle night is not specifically a South African comics
event but it is organised by local comics creators and you can always find some of them in attendance.
The event is free and open to anyone who wants to participate. Take along some sketching implements and sheets of paper or a notebook and use the opportunity to socialise and get advice on improving your art.
Since this is the first event of its kind there were some organisational issues with regards to a venue and so the event will be taking place at The Drawing Room
, a café and art gallery in Observatory where the group usually meets for its Saturday Sketch Meetups. This means that the doodle night will coincide with the opening of a photographic exhibition
at The Drawing Room, which is the establishment's official Art Thursdays event for February. The exhibition, which runs until 4 March 2017, will feature portraiture, documentary, and gonzo photography by Byron Berry, Kevin Prinsloo, and Simoné de Beer.
Thursday, 9 February 2017, 18:00 to 21:00
The Drawing Room, 87 Station Road, Observatory, Cape Town, South Africa
