Public health officials issued a "stay-at-home" order to be in effect until further notice. We've closed our office at 1035 Market Street and only offering essential services at Strut and the 6th Street Harm Reduction Center. Learn more.
We’ve been doing Shut Up and DRAW at Strut for over 4 years now. Normally we all sit together to draw peacefully and quietly, with a guest artist who does a workshop or has a QnA with us here and there. On May 23rd grab your sketchbooks and tune in to get a fun art tutorial from internationally known graphic novelist and educator Justin Hall! Who will be helping guide our pencils and pens with an art share, after we will be having a QnA with him, and possibly an optional share what you drew during this session.
This of course is all free! More info on the topic of Justin Hall’s workshop coming soon!
Make sure to go to our Facebook invite and click “going”, to stay tuned, and check back there to find out how to join this virtual performance!
