The CAM Raleigh Urban Drawing Group is a monthly group intended for all skill levels interested in exercising, exploring or expanding their drawing skills while exploring urban settings in downtown Raleigh.

For July and August, the Urban Drawing Group is meeting at the AIANC Center for Architecture and Design (CfAD) located at 14 E Peace Street in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Pausing at inspiring vistas, ignored buildings, curious landscapes, or forgotten details, the goal of the Urban Drawing group is to take time to study our surroundings and exercise our dormant drawing skills. All media that can pack into a pocket, backpack, or purse are encouraged and participants please bring your own supplies.

Participants must be 18+.

Session will be from 4pm - 6pm.

July: This is part of a larger free and public event going on the entire day at AIANC Center for Architecture and Design about sustainable foodways. Learn more here.
