I.Scream Drawing Night hosted by Nishat Akhtar

September 14, 2017, 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Drawing Night hosted by Nishat Akhtar

I.Scream: an ice cream social/anti social drawing night and print release by Nishat Akhtar

Drawing has provided a lifetime of catharsis (and guided in career moves) for Nishat: when the pencil takes over, the noise of the day and life quiet down. This night is an invitation to come draw together, eat ice cream, talk (or not talk), and share the good space that drawing gives. Nishat will have a few prints and things available for perusal and purchase.

Attendees will be gifted a zine which includes some prompts for dealing with stressy/sad/salty times. Sass provided freely at the event as well as pencils and paper, but feel free to bring your own sketchpad, or whatever you love to draw with. This event is FREE and sponsored by Design Week Portland.


About Outlet
Outlet is the studio space of Kate Bingaman-Burt.

Outlet opened its doors this April during Design Week Portland. The main floor is for workshops, pop-up events, and provides additional space for my larger projects. Barbara the Risograph lives here as well as my ever-growing zine library (I can’t stop, won’t stop collecting zines). There’s also a collection of art and publishing supplies and other materials for making (happy to share, always).

Upstairs is my private office where I draw for myself and for my clients (and write lots of email and get distracted by social media).

Outlet doesn’t have public hours outside of the scheduled events, but if you want to contact me and set up a time to explore the zine collection, please do so! You can find me at 2500 NE Sandy Boulevard, STE E, Portland, Oregon, 97232 (also, I love mail if you happen to have any zines you would like to share. SUBTLE HINT AMIRITE?)

I’m am also happy to conduct private group workshops outside of the scheduled ones. These workshops range from zine making, to drawing, to printing on the risograph to something custom that we come up with together. For a sneak peek of my teaching style and experience, take a look at my class page.

Oh! if you want to learn a bit more about why I opened Outlet, Design Week interviewed me on their blog. Also, I am having a lot of fun with my Outlet Instagram account.
