#socialsketch (DATE CHANGE TBA)

  • The Creativity Caravan 101 Walnut Street Montclair, NJ, 07042 United States (map)

DATE CHANGE TBA! We have a conflict on Thursday night. Working on a new date/location. Will announce ASAP! Make time for your creativity. Gather for an evening of sketching, drawing, doodling, collaging, collaborating, and socializing with other creatives. How it works: Start a piece of art, toss it into the middle of the table and let someone else riff on it for a while. Everyone goes home with a piece of free awesome art! 

7 - 9 PM, FREE. (But donations gladly accepted in our Karma Jar!)

#socialsketch was started by two San Francisco friends, Courtney Cerruti and Michael McConnell, who began drawing together at the kitchen table. We'll let them explain the power they found in the community that ensued: 

MIKE: To me, community represents the places we go to feel known and seen. Community is supporting each other and making connections in ways that can benefit the greater good of us as individuals and society as a whole. I think that artists and makers have a large part in making societal observations which are often overlooked.

COURTNEY: The energy at Social Sketch is always electric and happy. We encourage artists to collaborate by having half created work on the tables already. People often sit with others they don’t know but wind up talking and drawing all night. I’ve seen first dates happen at Social Sketch and new friendships form. I’ve met some amazing artists and people come back again and again. I love that the energy fostered at Social Sketch then spills into new friendships and projects outside of our meetups.
