West Coast Drawing is here to highlight the importance of drawing; its diversity, its technical challenge, and its standard-bearing excellence in the arts. We are here to showcase the best and brightest in rendering media. We are here to engage dialog with others on the evolving nature of drawing.

Members are among the most stellar artists on the California West Coast working in drawing media. We come together for mutual inspiration, exhibition and to raise the bar for drawing. Membership is juried, and standards are high. Only a third of applicants have been accepted.

The group was founded in 2003, created to reflect the ambitions and the quality reputations of our members. Each member of West Coast Drawing conducts a productive professional art career apart from the activities in this organization. The group is a showcase for a broad range of techniques and media for what we consider drawing.
