Ptarmigan existed as a project space in Vallila from 2009-2011 and a mobile curatorial/creative platfom until 2014. We no longer exist as an organised collective, but this website will continue to serve as an archive of the activities produced as Ptarmigan during these years.
Some of the people who were involved with Ptarmigan are now operating Temporary.
The idea is simple: we get together and draw! Anyone (any skill level) who wants to come and do some drawing in a relaxed, non-competitive atmosphere is welcome to join us. (Don't forget to bring your own drawing materials, and feel free to bring snacks to share.)
We're also going to try something new and draw a collaborative comic. Of course it is optional (you are free to only work on your own drawings), but we think it will be fun!
As Paul Klee said, "A drawing is simply a line going for a walk." It's time to walk the line.
