Shy People Drawing Club

The Shy People Drawing Club

Part class, part social club!  This group is meant for adults with beginner-to-intermediate drawing skills who want to practice in a fun and supportive setting.  Artist Jacquie Rolston will provide the theme for a drawing exploration, demo a technique or material to start us off, and provide light instruction and feedback throughout the session (but she’s also looking forward to doing some drawing herself!)

Drawing sessions will be offered the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the month.  7-9pm.

The cost is $15 fee a session, which includes instruction, materials, and tea and snacks.  (usually, home-baked treats…)

The club meets at Jacquie’s cheerfully shabby art studio near Clark and 2nd.  Unfortunately it is up a flight of stairs and is not wheelchair accessible.  Maximum 8 participants.

The story behind SPDC: Jacquie also teaches a beginners’ drawing class on Sundays.  Her current group of students asked her to create a drawing night so they could keep up their drawing practice, and she couldn’t say no!  The Shy People Drawing Club is a place where we can help each other solve technical problems as well as get creative with new approaches.  We will learn from each other and cheer each other on.  (If you are interested in the beginner drawing class, next session starts March 22.)

THEME:  Street Fashion

Practice drawing the human figure and clothes.  Maybe you want to try a fashion illustration style, a comics/animation style, or a more traditional gesture style.  We will be drawing from photos, and possibly posing for each other if people feel comfortable.  Feel free to bring costumes and statement fashion pieces to model!


Special Instructions

If we feel up for it, we could take turns modeling and so it would be fun to have costumes on hand.  No pressure, we can stick to photos or Jacquie can model.  It's called the Shy People Club for a reason!
