Happy to Drink & Draw

AIGA Chattanooga and downtown Chattanooga co-working space, Society of Work, team up to provide a fun time to creatively unwind every other month.

Designers and non-designers alike are heeding the creative call and taking advantage of the opportunity to get together with like-minded, fellow creatives to have a drink, get creative and have a great time. The participants are a diverse mix of students, professionals, artists, designers, and others simply enjoying the creative outlet the event provides.

Laura DeVilbiss had such a great time at our last Drink & Draw that she shared her story with us to share with you. Read on to see how she does Drink & Draw and join us for our next one on Thursday, November 20th 2014.

I love drinking and I also love drawing but unfortunately, I am not very good at meeting and talking to people I don’t know. It turns out that only super rad people enjoy the idea of meeting up in a really cool space with great views of the city for some post-work drinking & drawing amongst a group of strangers. So far, I have attended two Drink & Draw events hosted by AIGA Chattanooga and Society of Work, and I’ve already come away with four new friends.

My second time attending a Drink & Draw was even better than the first, somehow. I attended the first one in July and I had a blast, so I knew for sure I would be attending the next one. For less than ten bucks I was able to share a table and great conversations with professional illustrators & doodlers alike. Snacks were provided as well as a few tables with the necessary supplies: a bunch of paper, markers, pencils, and some words to help inspire our drawings (the beer helps with that too).

So if you’re looking for something to do after work on Thursday November 20th and you like meeting cool new people then you should definitely join us at the next installment of Drink & Draw at Society of Work. I know I’ll be there! Don’t forget to bring an I.D. if you want to drink.
