Partisan Film Drawing Club at Partisan, Manchester 17 January — 20 June 2022 Tickets from £0.00 — Book now

Partisan are thoroughly settling into their new space. With awesome gigs, events, folk sessions and workshops there’s plenty to get involved with in the upcoming months. We are particularly excited about a new monthly session that combines two of the best art forms, movies and doodling. Embrace your own creativity in a welcoming and supportive environment with the Film Drawing Club.

you might swear by the power of a bic biro and a sheet of A4

Each 3rd Monday of the month, a new motion picture will be explored by people drawing, painting charcoal-ing and experimenting. You’ll be taking influence from chosen still images and frames in the film to create a series of smaller studies and larger pieces. Your choice of material is entirely up to you, this might change on a monthly basis depending on the film, or you might swear by the power of a bic biro and a sheet of A4. Bringing your own sketchbook is advised, as well as your own mark making devices. However, each moment chosen from the film is open to be sketched, doodled, painted, line drawn, scribbled or reimagined in whatever way you choose.

receive input from other members of the group

There is no official teaching or guidance as part of the session, but if you’d like feedback on your work there is always the opportunity to share at the end of the session and receive input from other members of the group. This is by no means compulsory though.

Each film drawing club takes place simultaneously in Partisan’s space and on zoom so you can join however you feel most comfortable. Both options work on a pay as you feel basis so that no one is left out for financial reasons.
