Drink and Draw with Indy Arts at The Old Abbey Taphouse, Manchester, 2 June 2022, from £14.50 - Book now

Drawing can be a mindful practice, it gives us a chance to slow down and focus without the pressures of judgement or time. Indy Arts, a.k.a. visual artist India, is encouraging people to pick up a pencil and allow themselves the freedom to draw with wild abandon. Join them for life drawing with a difference at Withington Public House or The Old Abbey Taphouse in Drink and Draw.

The casual settings of these classes allow you to chat, drink and eat while you explore the shapes, curves and colours of the studies. All abilities are welcome. You might be an established artist looking for new inspiration, or a curious person looking for a new hobby or creative project.

an interesting and inspiring set up from any angle

In each session, India will curate a new still life set up in the middle of the room. This may be made up of objects, furniture or ornaments but you can be sure that the composition will be an interesting and inspiring set up from any angle. Keep an eye out for hints and clues about what each session setup will look like on the Indy Arts social media.

Drawing materials will be provided but anyone is welcome to bring their own materials, media or arts supplies if they have preferred tools to draw with. Your first drink is included with the ticket price and you can even try Withy Public Halls pizza or the Taphouse’s delicious fries while you work.

The relaxing power of creativity can never be underestimated and local arts evenings like these are a great way to meet like-minded people and learn about the artistic practices around you. Find your own creative aesthetic with the friendly encouragement of India and the other drawers in a warm and welcoming space with Drink and Draw.
