DRAW @ the IDEA Center

DRAW brings live figure drawing to the IDEA Center on the first Wednesday of each month and is open to artists 18+. We welcome artists of all abilities, styles, and genres!

Part class, part social experience, DRAW lets artists practice their skills among friends. Artists should bring both their own supplies and snacks. 

NOTE: DRAW admission is $10 for all attendees.

A facilitator will be available to share figure-drawing techniques and to answer questions. Limited easels are available first-come-first-served. Space is limited to 15 artists. Walk-ins welcome as space allows.
