Friday ARTnights: Working from the Figure


Working from nude models, this is an adults-only, uninstructed, monitored, 3-hour walk-in, drawing session. It is highly suggested that those who attend have at least some basic or prior drawing experience from the life model. The model usually poses for an extended period in the same pose so that an artist can render a completed piece and at times we will extend a particularly good pose for multiple sessions. You are free to paint or draw in a medium of your choice. The event is inclusive and welcomes both beginners and practicing, professional artists. Expect a warm, supportive, and engaging atmosphere to further develop your figure drawing skills.

Participants are encouraged to help each other and advise, as well as bring snacks or refreshments to share. $15 drop in fee-- Easels, tray tables, and drawing boards are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Workshop Performance of Alice Adams

Join CHAW for a world premiere event: Alice Adams, a musical in progress composed by Julliard- trained Robert Convery, known for his stunning cantata, “Songs of Children,” based on the writings of the children of the Holocaust and performed at the opening of The U.S. Holocaust Museum in 1983.  

Convery has adapted Booth Tarkington’s novel, Alice Adams, the 1921 Pulitzer Prize Novel. Convery’s adaptation includes 15 characters and 21 original songs. There will be a post-performance feedback/discussion with the composer after the August 11th performance with possible additional sessions at other performances.
