Calendar of Events
Friday Night Sketch and Saturday Morning Sketch: We invite everyone to come and take advantage of the invaluable artistic reference a live model provides at our weekly figure drawing sessions. We run studio sessions in an open environment to encourage experimentation, collaboration, and constructive criticism among members. Feel free to borrow our limited supply of paper, charcoal, pencils, and markers for the duration of each session. Most sessions begin with one hour of 30 second to 10 minute poses followed by a short break with free food. For the second hour the model holds poses for 20 minutes. We play quiet music at all indoor sessions. The board members and models are constantly trying to develop new poses, scenery, and music playlists, so please speak with any of us about your ideas for future sketch sessions.
Friday Night Sketch: Fridays 6-8PM in Dodge 501.
Saturday Morning Sketch: Saturdays 10AM-12PM in Dodge 501.
Artist Society also runs the following one-off events:
At our Models on the Sundial promotion, students pose costumed on the sundial in the center of the Morningside Heights campus while we give out free supplies and information about our club to passersby.
The Drawathon is our big welcome-back event for spring semester. We hire student models to pose in shifts throughout the night as attendees use free supplies to draw and paint. This longer event gives you plenty of time to warm up your drawing hand. Donít miss out on free dinner and dessert!
This past year Artist Society increased cooperation with other student art groups on campus, collaborating in events like Glass House Rocks and the Tablet Art Fair and a recent student showcase sponsored by Postcrypt Gallery this past November.Scroll down to view the calendar.
