Open Figure Drawing and other Regular Events
IN ADDITION TO ONGOING CLASSES AND WORKSHOPS, SHOESTRING STUDIO HOSTS TWO WEEKLY SESSIONS drawing from life WITH FIGURE MODELs. THESE SESSIONS ARE ALWAYS DROP-IN WITH NO INSTRUCTION COMPONENT, AND OPEN TO MEMBERS AND NON-MEMBERS ALIKE. MEMBERS PAY $10, NON-MEMBERS PAY $15, OR $10 WITH A FRIEND.
Wednesday evening Drink-n-Draw, every Wednesday, 6:30-9pm. $15/ $10
Join us for a rotating cast of professional figure models, hailing from backgrounds as diverse as dance, yoga, burlesque and drag. Poses build exponentially from dynamic two-minute gestures to twenty minutes in length. Easels and chairs are available, drawing supplies are on hand; although we encourage you to bring your own favorite materials, the beer is cold and the camaraderie is warm. Characteristic of a tradition started in years prior, we fire up the crock pot beforehand and invite the attendees to stay for a potluck supper to follow.
Sunday afternoon Long Pose Lab, every Sunday, 4-7pm. $15/ $10
We’ve added a second section to our popular weekly figure drawing group. Sundays will be dedicated to long-format poses, with one pose for the entire session. All mediums of painting are welcome, as well as draftsmen focusing on developed drawings. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own supplies. There will be opportunities to work with costumes and environment in the poses.
The Brooklyn Draw Jam! First Monday of each month, 7-10pm, $5 Suggested Donation
The Brooklyn Draw Jam is a little different from your average drink and draw. Artists of any skill level can come draw whatever they want and hang out in a relaxed atmosphere. Jammers engage in spontaneous collaborative drawings like jam comics, exquisite corpses, and drawing games. Regulars include Jess Worby, Jason Das, Brian Elig, and more. Cartoonists and illustrators are welcome to bring their own work as well.
