What is The Open Draw?

Imagine a place where you can share your passion for drawing against the backdrop of music and drinks. If drawing essential to your creative process you are invited to be part of our local community. The Open Draw is an international network of emerging and established visual artists working with various aspects of drawing. We provide a hybrid space for creative innovation, ideas and experimentation in visual literacy. A canvas for collaboration, but also a stage for disruption.

The Open Draw is a platform for drawing and illustration and consists of The Open Draw communities, this online magazine, and satellite activities to promote the act and art of drawing. We service professionals, aspiring artists and illustrators, and common enthusiasts alike in a place to meet, share and inspire.
