Take part in surrealist games to set your drawing skills free

Surrealist games are a great way to break habits, generate ideas, and make new friends while drawing. October Guest Artist, Logan Kruidenier, has been leading “Doodle Jams” throughout the city inspired by his practice of making quick drawings on post-it notes every morning. This practice has become an essential part of his day and has brought fresh ideas and new compositions to his art practice.

Build your own wacky narratives with the aid of surrealist exercises and a pad of post-it notes. Experiment with storytelling and composition by arranging (and rearranging) the post-its.  Break out of you normal routines, enjoy a mid-week beverage, and channel your inner Dalí!

Logan Kruidenier is a multi-media artist who makes comics, prints, drawings, and most recently, public art installations and performances. Kruidenier uses narration to address themse of immersion, identity, and consumption. He recently completed a Bachelors in Fine Arts degree with an emphasis in Printmaking at California State University, Chico and spent a year abroad at the Kunsthochschule Mainz in Germany.

Drink and Draw is a low-key event devoted to drawing practices. There is no teacher and no pretensions. Spudnik provides a theme for the evening, props, and festive drink. You provide a sketchbook and basic drawing materials, and come with friends! Drawing nights take place the first Wednesday of every other month.
