What we're about

This meetup is for people that want practice drawing other peoples' faces. The idea is that we meet in a coffee shop (usually at St. Marks on Saturday mornings, or Wednesday nights) with our sketch pads and other art stuff. We are all simultaneously drawing; the trick is to hold your head still so that you can be drawn by others. Each artist is drawing another artist, in increments of 20 minutes, then we switch subjects. The goal is to get to meet other portrait artists and gain portrait drawing experience for free (except the coffee, pastries, frittata etc. tip your barista!)
We don't do a formal critique, as I am keeping this group anxiety-friendly, but it's fun to show your drawing, if you choose, to your subject. This is not a class and we do not hire a model. At the nighttime "drinking and drawing" sessions we do not use a timer and it's even more of a social-hour.
