Figure Drawing with Long Pose
Join us for our weekly figure drawing session in the heart of Union Square. This session is open to all levels. Open to the public. Materials: If you are looking for a good pencil set to bring we recommend these and a good drawing pad like this one We operate on a first come first served basis. Arriving by 6:30 is a good way to guarantee a seat. • Bring your own drawing supplies. • Our room is quiet while the model is posing. • We have coffee and homemade cookies at the long break. • We finish on time so you can be headed home at 9:30 p.m sharp! As always if you have any questions please feel free to email me. I look forward to seeing you there. Simon Drawing by Charles Basman

What we're about

Drawing New York is a community of over 7500 members who love to draw. It is FREE to become a member of this group.

DNY helps people make "real and tangible progress" with their drawings whether they are absolute beginners, intermediate sketchers or professional artists.

We meet several times a week to draw from a live model. We have both instructed and uninstructed classes.

Drawing New York hosts full-day workshops with exceptional drawing and painting teachers as well as presenting artist demonstrations and drawing competitions.

DNY also creates original content for museums and cultural institutions in New York City including The Morgan Library, The Museum of The City of New York and The Museum of Arts and Design.

We hope this group provides both a place to practice your drawing as well as learn about exciting drawing session and exhibition throughout New York.
