In each 3-hr session, we will draw from a live model, beginning with quick poses to warm up, and then gradually extend the pose length to a final 1 hour pose to finish the evening.

First timers welcome. All levels of experience and skill are invited. This is an uninstructed event is for anyone who enjoys or is curious about drawing from a nude figure model. Do your own thing. The environment is laid back, yet professional, and we want everyone to enjoy themselves. No photography allowed. Bring your own beverages. Great tunes will be played, great models will be hired, and we'll make some fantastic artwork.

These sessions are moderated by David Bell and Joe Scarpulla, who run Big Object animation studio. David and Joe are stop-motion animators and visual artists, and David is an instructor at Parsons and SVA.

3-hr session: $15
Please RSVP. We operate on a first come-first serve basis.

Your drawing/painting materials (no oils), $15, BYOB.


We are a few blocks from the Greenpoint station on the G and from the Greenpoint stop on the East River Ferry.

Note: When you get to the building, sometimes the elevator access is limited in the evenings to tenants with scan cards. If they restrict elevator access, there will be signs indicating who to call to get upstairs. We are on the 3rd floor.


-Please arrive 10-15 minutes early to get a seat before the model begins. The poses begin promptly at 7:00. If you arrive late, please quietly find a place, and pay your admission during a 5 minute break.
-Switch cell phones to silent until the break.
-Please respect the model and the other artists present and refrain from talking while the model is posing. If you need a pose adjustment during the long pose, tell the monitor in a way that does not disrupt the quietness of the room.
-No photography of the model.
-Please clean up after yourself.

Great! We really value our models and hold them in the highest regard. Prospective model info will be kept on file, but do not post your info to the Meetup site. Send a image and resume to [masked]
