Life Drawing - Every Thursday Night


  • The Plaxall Gallery 5-25 46th Ave. LIC, NY (map)

Draw from a live nude model, have a free drink and listen to cool music in a beautiful 12,000 sf art gallery.

No judgments. No skeptical eyes. Open to everyone. 

Join us anytime and get down to business with many shorter timed renditions that are sure to improve your skills, from whatever level they are:
25 minutes of 1 minute posses, 25 min of 2 minute posses, 25 minutes of 5, 10, working up to 20 minute long posses.

When you only have a minute or two to sketch the entire figure, you don't have time to worry what it looks like, you are forced to just draw without judgment. It loosens up your eye and your hand so you can create and see more freely. You will make dozens of drawing, so bring enough paper and get ready for the workout.

We suggest large, cheap news print pads and medium charcoal sticks, so you don’t have to stop to sharpen anything, but any medium that works for you is game; pencel, markers, water color, crayons...
