Drink & Draw: Let’s Give It a Try 3rd Mondays

Drink & Draw returned to Gangplank Chandler during Creative Mondays last week. Artist Gilead led our Drink & Draw this past Monday, August 18th with a demo of animal anatomy, cats & horses. Moving forward, every third Monday at 7 PM, we’ll provide space for beginners through professionals to get together and just draw. Bring your own adult drinks or choose a softer beverage if wanted. If you’re a professional artist, please consider sharing a 20 minute or less technique demo. Next Drink & Draw is September 15, 2014, 7 PM.

Now for some pictures!

Along with all of the great activities and live music, Gangplank Jr and Building Bonanza will be there hosting Lego events from 10am-4pm on Saturday and 10am-2pm on Sunday.

If you are already a part of the Gangplank Jr First Lego League, we will be unveiling this season’s mat and challenges.  From 10am-12pm on Saturday, we will assemble the boards for this year and discuss the various tactics we can use to achieve the missions. There will also be a Sumo bot challenge (2-4pm), a large master building session with Building Bonanza and a free robotics build to handle various challenges (12-2pm).

Sunday will start off with First Lego League information for this year’s challenges and a chasis build competition, followed by another master build session from the guys at Building Bonanza.

As if all of that wasn’t enough to excite you, a full size replica of a Harley Davidson will be built from Legos by certified Lego artist Nathan Sawaya over the course of the two days.  Don’t miss out on the family fun at this great event.

This is a hands on event.  The kids will be tattooing grapefruit, oranges and any other citrus we can get our hands on with REAL tattoo machines, ink and needles.  For those that want to take it to the next level several Gangplank Jr supporters have even offered up their skin for actual tattoos from the new apprentices.

You must RSVP for this event as space and machines will be limited.  Please leave a comment below if you plan on attending.
