What we're about

This started out as a portrait sketch group but we're broadening it a little to include more kinds of drawing meetups.

We meet about twice a month at the Starbucks on Mill Plain Rd in Danbury to practice to draw quick portraits from life. All levels welcome, we provide some basic instructional art material if you are new to portrait drawing.

Hang out with other local artists who like drawing portraits. We take turns modeling for ten minutes at time to get to draw a variety of different people in one session. The setting of drawing around a table is nice because we get to see our subjects (each other) close up. The more people who come, the more time you get to spend drawing.

We also have occasional figure drawing meetups and we hope to do some landscape sketching when the weather gets nicer.

Costume Figure Drawing Model Session - Port Royal Privateer

The theme for June is "Port Royal Privateer" and draws inspiration from the historic gender-bending privateers from the Golden Age of Piracy as well as swashbuckling Hollywood classics. Poses will range from short and active to longer seated poses that will give more time to explore the details of the costume. Our group is small, friendly, and supportive with members ranging from novices to experienced commercial artists who share an appreciation for life drawing and costumed narratives. Students and total beginners welcome! Bring your own drawing materials. Suggested donation $25 RSVP for address
