Thoughtful Discussions for Men

It is a chance to spend time with other men talking about themselves and their opinions and listening to others do the same.

Here are some of the topics that may be presented: Warm up practices, thumbnail sketches, drawing 10 minutes every day, continuous line drawing, symbols and geometric shapes,  timed sketches (for example 30 seconds, 2 minutes, 5 minutes), urban sketching, gesture drawing and blind contour, to name a few.
