Join us for an evening of sketching, community, and inspiration. All ages and experience levels are welcome. Come prepared with a sketch of your own in response to this prompt: Make a sketch of a person and their surroundings.
During this program, we will share our sketches and talk about the choices we made and the techniques we used to create them. A guest artist will then give an illustrated talk about their work and provide us with a sketching challenge to work on during the program. Sketch sharing, conversation, and feedback will follow.
We are excited to have South Bend-based artist and social scientist Angelica Frausto—also known as Nerdy Brown Kid—join us as the guest artist for the evening. Frausto creates vibrant and powerful images that heal, raise awareness, and connect with her Xicana roots.
This program will take place on Zoom and is designed to be interactive. Participants will share previously made sketches, participate in conversations, and create a sketch during the program. Video is required. Something to sketch with and on is also necessary.

This program is part of The Big Draw, the world's largest celebration of drawing that takes place across the globe every year during October. It is for anyone who loves to draw, as well as those who think they can't. The festival promotes drawing as a universal language that has the power to change lives and unite people of any age, background, race, or religion from around the globe.
