San Diego Drawing Guild

Every Wednesday 10am-2pm

For anyone interested in colored pencil work. There is a $2 meeting fee and artists are encouraged to bring lunch. We have a lunch break. We correspond via text messaging. When someone isn't able to make it to the group, we tell the group so we can figure out how many tables/chairs to set up. We all help with set up and take down chairs and tables. No one is a leader, we make decisions by voting. Since we are a diverse group of people we shy away from politics and religion.
