Welcome to Drawing is Free

No experience necessary.

All ages welcome.

Drawing is Free is a project which makes the power of connecting through drawing available to everyone.

We run public drawing events, host free open online drawing sessions, and collaborate with communities and cultural organizations. The Drawing is Free project is motivated by belief in the power of drawing to sensitize us to the world, bring us focus and purpose… and make us feel good!
