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.
Call (202) 547-6839 for more information.

Upcoming Dates: 8/5, 8/19, 9/2, 9/9, 10/7, 10/21, 11/4, 11/18, 12/2, 12/16 -- 6:30-9:30pm

An Iliad by Lisa Peterson and Denis O'Hare

An Iliad by Lisa Peterson and Denis O'Hare based on Homer's The Iliad, translated by Robert Fagles

The Iliad comes to life in this visceral modern-day retelling. Honoring the great tradition of epic poetry, the urgency of Homer's classic bursts forth from a single narrator — Taffety Punk company member Esther Williamson — with live music accompaniment. The story of Achilles' rage and Hector's passion lives on as a warning to us all of the perils of war and wrath. Wars end, but is there an end to war?
