Based on the principles of Community, Inclusion, Practice and Fun, we organize weekly meetings in different cultural/social places in Lisbon since May 2021. We believe that drawing together is a great way to get to know each other better and also to get to know ourselves. Drawing can be a vehicle for emancipation, belonging and awareness.

Lisbon Drawing Club is interested in working with a diversity of models that reflect the richness of our social heritage and stimulate a practice of empathy, working with a plurality of bodies, gestures and identities represented by professional models, artists, folk groups, migrants, seniors, inhabitants of different neighborhoods, etc. Once a month, sessions are dedicated to trans and non-binary models in cooperation with Queer Art Lab. Drawing classes (Masterclasses) with guest artists are also organized on a monthly basis.
