DIS Meet-Up 002

Quatt Village Hall | 28/07/17

DIS Meet-Up 002 was held at Quatt Village Hall, a hidden gem of Shropshire, near Brtidgnorth. In spite of the terrific rain, we dedicated drawing lovers, ventured out to take part in games and activities, with a hot drink and delicious cake and scones to keep us going. It was great to meet more new faces, all of whom I hope to see again.
So, here’s what we got up to last Friday…

 

This meet-up’s collaborative drawing was a space scene. You can see all of the unique spacecraft that we drew, in the video below:

 

…We found out a little about each other (and ourselves) with our “Swiss army hands”

 

 

…We accidentaly created some new species by drawing beetles from just verbal descriptions

 

 

Guess the caption from the drawing. How hard could it be? I mean, “a handsome knee”, that’s just obvious! …

 

 

…To finish off, we drew some “mirrored mandalas”. Very calming and satisfying.

 

…Even though most of us were meeting for the first time, I think it’s fair to say that drawing brought drew us together. It was a very enjoyable evening, with a great group of people.

 

Thank you everyone who came. And thank you Jackie and Steph for all of the effort you went to with providing a brilliant venue at Quatt Village Hall and superb refreshments.

 

The next venue will be announced soon. If you’d like to come again, we’d love to see you next time and, if you haven’t made it to a meet-up yet, come along because it’s good fun with wonderful company. See you soon!

DIS Meet-Up 001

EightySix’d | 08/06/17

DIS Meet-Up 001 took place at the wonderful café, EightySix’d, in Ironbridge. I’m thrilled with how the evening went. It was a pleasure to meet everyone and I hope to see you all at future meet-ups.
If you couldn’t make it this time or you’ve only just heard about DIS, here’s what happened last Thurdsay…

Everyone contributed a hot air balloon to the collaborative drawing. The owl balloon was my favourite…

 

…There were games – One which involved guessing a word from drawings, another with verbal clues that you could guess only by drawing…

 

…We drew ourselves as our “spirit animal” – We really began to get to know each other with this one!…

 

…DIS meet-ups are intended to be social gatherings and we’re off to a great start because this one certainly was…

 

…As well as games, there were challenges – like “mirroring” your partner as they draw, creating wonderful, symmetrical patterns. Some groups took this much further by also “flipping” the drawing or “reflecting” the pattern four ways…

…Everyone responded to all of the games, exercises and challenges in such a positive way and with real enthusiasm.

 

Thank you to everyone who attended our inaugural DIS meet-up. The support for Drawing in Shropshire has been astonishing, even from before a date was mentioned, let alone a venue.
So, thank you also Molly and Evelina – EightySix’d proved to be the perfect first location.

And, finally, for everyone who wanted to come and either couldn’t make it or wasn’t able to secure a place this time, fear not! There will be many more meet-ups and the next venue will be announced soon.
