The Dare2Draw is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit educational organization dedicated to creating mentoring and networking opportunities for cartoonists of all levels, cultivating awareness of, and appreciation for the study of the sequential arts and the furthering and preserving of the comic book medium’s contribution to literacy, art and culture, through outreach programs, events and projects.

Get Involved! That means pro’s, students, and everyone in between!

At the Dare2Draw events, seasoned professionals present lectures, demonstrations and Q&A’s, on all aspects of sequential art, from ‘acting’ for the comic book panels, to breaking down a script, figure drawing, anatomy, painting, gesture drawings and using different drawing techniques and mediums.

At the Dare2Draw, we always strive to stretch the borders of the possible and offer a way for all the attendees to expand their abilities by working together. To volunteer, donate, or to learn more on getting involved in the Dare2Draw please contact us here.
