You bring the sketchpad; they’ll supply the beer. Or at least that’s what happens at Drink’n’Draw, a weekly event hosted by the Williamsburg art studio, 3RDWARD.
For $15 each Wednesday night, people can come ready with art supplies and draw live nude models, who pose on stage for ten-minute stretches before switching poses. Pair that with some ice cold Colt45s, and you have yourself a night.
“It is fun to see the first time figure drawers show off their work and it is good for artists to get out of their studios and remember what it was like to just draw,” said Arielle Fenton, facility manager and graphic designer at 3RDWARD.
3RDWARD opened in May 2006 and has since attracted anywhere between 40 to 60 people to its Drink’n’Draw events.
