Drag & Draw is an art class with a difference! We host life-drawing sessions with drag queens as models, so it's essentially half art class and half drag show. The class is made up of various different fast and slow-paced drawing exercises, incorporating lip-syncs and audience interaction. This is an informal event, very suitable for life-drawing beginners. It will also challenge experienced artists by providing, not your typical life-drawing model, for you to draw – think more sass!


Drag & Draw launched in Feb 2018 by Adrian Colwell and Ailbhe O'Connor after identifying the need for alternative social opportunities for the LGBTQ+ community. With both founders valuing the power of the arts as a platform connection, the idea for Drag & Draw quickly emerged!
