Artist meetup Drawpile tutorial

We will now be hosting a Drawpile session during every weekly artist meetup that isn’t a workshop/event! Participation is completely optional. You can also join remotely from the comfort of your own home! Just keep a lookout for the room code and password in the #art-discussion channel of our club Discord when artist meetups start at 5PM.

Drawpile is a software that allows multiple artists to draw simultaneously, real-time, on the same digital canvas.  This will be a simple tutorial on how to get set up.

What you need:
– Computer with internet connection
– A method of drawing on said computer of your choice, e.g. graphics tablet or mouse.
*Currently does not work on mobile devices.

  1. Make sure you have the latest version of Drawpile.
    Download it from the website. To our knowledge, older versions don’t work!
  2. Click Session > Join.

3. In the popup window, type the 5 letter room code that execs will put on the projector and in the #art-discussion channel of our Discord server.

4. You will be prompted to enter a password, which will be projected alongside the room code.

5. There are layers and brush controls like most digital drawing programs. Have fun!
