Education & Mentoring

Dare2Draw is a 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 medium's contribution to literacy, art and culture, through outreach programs, events and projects.

This community-based cartoonist-mentoring group has been meeting, at locations around New York City, providing a nurturing environment for artists of all levels, that love to draw, working in partnership with other arts organizations, providing access to skilled professional mentors, and affordable opportunities to connect with an artistic community, in which to develop themselves and collaborate with others. Dare2Draw is a welcoming home to a diverse population of artists, creating programming to encourage and seek out women, artists of color, LGBT, military personnel and others who want to connect and inspire each other, maintaining a family friendly atmosphere, and encouraging young artists to compete for the fun and art supply prizes. The Dare2Draw is a showcase for both established and new artists.


The Dare2Draw provides a mentoring environment with art demos, live model instruction, Quick Draw Contests and prizes provided by sponsors. 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.
