Online Creative Talks

This month’s speakers curated by Mo McMasters.

Process // Illustrator Ellie Cota shares how her childhood shaped her intuitive cat drawings.

Lesson // Color Designer Sam Kestin shares what they’ve learned about Color Theory.

Project // Artist-designer Schessa Garbutt shares their projects collaborating with a robot (an Axidraw v3) to create patterns and art prints that look hand-drawn.

While we normally meet in person at Frogtown Brewery, our monthly events are  entirely online for now. We get together and share projects, ideas, lessons, and inspirations.

We’re currently on SUMMER BREAK!

We’ll be back with more great speakers, talks, and monthly hangouts in the fall.

Stay cool – never change – friends4ever!
