Build your creative community in Seattle this summer

Careers within the creative arts community often rely heavily on connections and referrals. As such, it’s important to always seek new opportunities to broaden your contacts and meet others in the arts community. There are many fun ways to do this. In addition to Art Walks across Seattle taking place nearly weekly where you can visit galleries and meet artists, other events such as Drink & Draw, put on by Capitol Cider and Artist & Craftsman, are great ways to engage with other artists in a fun, creative and low-key environment. At Drink & Draw, enjoy free art supplies, sketch from a live model, and mix and mingle with other artists.
