Groove Is In The Art! Launch party


Groove is in the ART!! 

We love drawing and dancing to cheesy 90s pop: so what better way to celebrate the launch of Sketch Appeal magazine than with our first ever drawing disco!

Part structured workshop, part rainbow rave: expect a fun and informal night of drawing, dancing and drawing whilst dancing! 

Part 1: We'll (sit down) and work through a series of fun disco-inspired drawing challenges, including some tasters from the mag: 

  • Draw your favourite cheesy album/single cover  

  • Do some power drawing to power ballads: attempt to draw 50 pop stars in 15 minutes! 

  • DIY photoprops

  • Draw to the beat of songs 

  • Play collaborative games  

Part 2: Our fabulous friends from Art Model Collective, Carla and Manko, will arrive: decked out as groovy disco girls and ready to pose for us in 2 x 30 minute slots. 

Part 3: To round-off the night, we'll line the dance floor with easels ready to dance and draw our way around each canvas until the small hours! 

The whole thing will be set to a super-cheesy soundtrack featuring plenty of 90s pop, including our 'signature songs': I'm Too Sketchy, Sketchbomb and, of course, Groove Is In The Art!

Tickets include all materials, free sketchbooks and a goody bag inc. a £5 voucher to spend at GreatArt.  

Limited space/tickets available so advance booking essential !
