draw from a live figure!

Come draw from a live nude model and enjoy snacks and wine from the cafe!

*** Since this group has grown in size, I want to note that 10-12 people will sit comfortably; I don't like the idea of turning people that want to draw away, so I'm trying to come up with ways to make everyone happy! I'll bring a yoga mat if anyone wants to sit on the floor and make sure the tables are arranged so everyone can see for the future. Later in the fall another session may be added provided the space is able.

The time between 6:30 and 7 will be used to set up and meet other people, and drawing will begin at 7 pm.

We will be focusing on a series of short, challenging poses (the longest poses will be 5 minutes). This is designed to help artists of all levels to get back to basics and focus on the gesture behind the pose. It is encouraged that artists bring materials appropriate to sketching: charcoal, pens, pencils, and newsprint or sketch pads are ideal, however feel free to experiment with any mediums you wish to bring.

The location is at 2 Moon Art House and Cafe, 315 4th Avenue in Brooklyn (

    Had a bad seat on the couch, too many people passing by to use the bathroom. I enjoyed doing the quick gesture drawings, maybe would have like one final pose at 15 minutes or two 15 minute poses at the end.

      i think it depends on the model and the crowd, there are some models that do short poses exceptionally well. otoh if people want 15 minute poses i'd rather get rid of the 10s or go an extra 15 mins.

      I was worried if you were gettin' enough room to see but I thought everything was alright because you never spoke up... or maybe I didn't hear :( (I was the guy sitting in front right near the hall with the bathroom). Please tell me or others during so we can switch positioning to better accommodate next time. Thank you for joining man and we'll add a 15 min pose if it's requested. Small group democracy. ;)
