Next Meetup

Figure Drawing!!!
THERE IS NO NEED TO RSVP TO THIS EVENT! This is an open studio and a few of us have been going weekly. So this is an open invitation to show up and draw from a model every Monday night. Steve (and Larry) love the idea of our group so come as often or as a little as you want! I will keep this notification up as a reminder every week! WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE for letting you know if a class is cancelled due to weather or what-not. Please get on Steve's mailing list for that! DETAILS: Steve Carpenter's Art Center ( has an open figure drawing night every Monday from 6-9pm. The cost is 5$ per hour (cash is advisable) or pay $60 for 15 hours "on the books" (Larry or Kevin keep track of your remaining hours on the attendance legal pad). Be advised that sometimes the models are nude or clothed, both male and female. They supply benches and drawing boards. Anything else you will need to bring. There are breaks here and there, and a kitchen with coffee and popcorn! I would get there early if you want a bench or a good spot! The model starts with 5 minute poses and they progress as the night goes on.

What we're about

Rochester Sketch ( ) is a group for people who want to work in their sketchbooks together and share the books that they already have going.

When we draw an idea, as whimsical and insignificant as it might seem, it becomes forever captured as a sacred note in a protected book. There is something strangely significant about this insignificant act. After many days, many weeks, months, and years, you have a journal of insignificance or significance to some and not to others which can be discovered and shared.

I think that people who keep sketchbooks or want to keep sketchbooks are interesting and I want to meet them and discover their books and share my books with them as well.

This group is for people who like to draw, sketch, or doodle.

If you draw from life, your imagination, or just like to cover page after page in squiggles and spirals, you should join this group. We welcome anyone who likes to draw or keeps a working sketchbook for any reason.

Any skill level is welcome in this group. Any medium (reasonable with regards to the meetup location)...and any subject matter is welcome!

Rochester Sketch was founded in 2012 by Bob. You can see his blog here: ( )
