Drawing Club at #Catvidfest

Save0003

People came to the picnic tables on Open Field and were prompted with cat-themed phrases to encourage them to draw the many cats on their minds and in their imaginations.

Some of these phrases included: Fat Cat, Leonardo Di-Catprio, Catastrophe, Digi C@, Cat Burglar, Live Long and Pawsper, and many more. People also took liberty and drew cats unprompted, because… well, why wouldn’t you?

Here are some of the wonderful drawings made at the Internet Cat Video Festival.

Drawing Club is indeed in full effect on Thursday nights this summer from 4-8pm right outside of the Vineland Place entrance. We will be inhabiting  the picnic tables (weather permitting). Come through and draw with us! There will be Fluxus drawing kits available for those who are interested in performing scores or guided drawing.

This year we are exploring different approaches to tracing and collaborative drawing. Check out the giant collaborative drawing we did at the bottom of this post! Drawing with strangers is so much fun.

When’s the last time you played exquisite corpse?
