Figure drawing event with live models, dressed in a "Vampire Gothic" theme. Come out to drink & draw with us in a friendly, social setting!

“Your heart burns for love
My soul burns for blood
I'll take you, I'll break you
I'll crush you, I'll break you

I can't feed my hunger
Your youth makes me younger
I'll hurt you, desert you
Turn your dreams to nightmares”

Ladies and gentlefolk, take a walk with us into the long, dark night. Meet the beautiful, deadly creatures of the Gothic Underworld. Spend an evening drawing magnificent immortals, blood thirsty and elegant. Fear not! Our Vampires only want to pose for you, so leave those wooden stakes and silver bullets at the door.

We love when you dress for the theme, so feel free to come dressed in your Vampire best, or any Halloween costume! Tell your friends, let’s make this the best Halloween-themed Sketch event on the Jersey Shore.

Have dinner upstairs at Capitoline, then come down to the basement at 6:30 pm. We will provide three 45(ish)-minute rounds of sketching, with our models posing for various lengths of time. There will be short breaks in between rounds, where we’ll encourage you to share your favorite sketches with us. Please bring your own art supplies; we will have sketch pads and pencils available if necessary. One lucky artist selected by our models will win a grand prize package of art supplies at the end of the night.

Admission is $10 at the door for a seat (sketchers and non-sketchers alike). We take cash and credit, and there is an ATM for your convenience. Please note Asbury Park is street parking.
