About sketchXchange

SketchXchange is a monthly WeMake event that gives students, creative professionals, and curious community members a peek inside the creative process of Portland’s favorite artists and illustrators. Presenters share their sketchbooks and answer questions from the group, while participants bring their own sketchbooks to swap drawings and exchange ideas.

Proceeds from this event will help WeMake’s efforts to support arts and music education, as well as Hollywood Theatre’s Animate It! program, which organizes affordable animation workshops for kids ages 7-18.
