Hey Occupationists ! Don't worry Journal Square is still yours. But we wanted to invite artists and those interested in live model drawing for the debut of the Downtown Figure Movement tonight at 58 hosted by Joe Velez. First pose is at 7:30. Details below :
The Downtown Figure Movement is an inclusive weekly figure drawing/painting/whatever session (non-toxic materials only and no photography). It will take place in the heart of Jersey City's art community, The 58 Gallery, and will be hosted by Joe Velez. All, and we mean ALL, skill levels are welcomed to join. It's going to be a light, fun and casual atmosphere. All you need to bring are your supplies, your smiles and $10! Each session is 3 hours and will consist of: 5 - 2 minute poses, 4 - 5 minute poses, 3 - 10 minute poses , 1 - 30 minute pose, 1 - 90 minute pose.
Join The Downtown Figure Movement and create amongst some of the most notable Artists in the area!
The rest of the weekend look good to me, especially since it doesn't require me booking, banding, djing, etc. It's nice to be a guest, sometimes.
