Summary: Need help in finding artistic things to do in Austin, TX (In the United state). Also getting friends from there to hang out with would very helpful. Fun things to do also appreciated
So, coming next October I will be visiting Austin for the Austin GDC (Game Development conference) which lasts from 5 - 8 Oct. After that, I have until 30 Oct free (yearly vacation).
I came from a country where there arent much art activities going on. I longed to have people to draw with, drawing lessons to attend and maybe get a mentor or something. Seeing that I have 3 weeks, I'm trying to advance my art as much as possible, so I'm declaring this as an Art Vacation !
What I'm looking for is friends, places for artists to hang in (I dont know whats out-there since I haven't seen any locally), maybe mentors (I'm welling to pay too), workshops, life drawing lessons/gatherings ... Anything you could share really. Heck, if there is any good BBQ Wings place, let me know!
Thank you for you time, and have a nice day!
(Oh, and if you are afraid that I'd be a mad person, you can ask me anything you want here or in the #conceptart irc channel).
