The Open Drawing Studio Project takes over a vacant space owned by St. Peter’s Church in Morristown, New Jersey.  An artistically minded congregation has invited us to reinvent a portion of an underused building on the campus for the month of August 2011.

Models for both life drawing and portraiture, still-lifes, and the amazing surrounding architecture will provide instructional and inspirational content. Materials will be available for drop-in drawers and easels and tables for setting up personal workspaces.  There’s a kitchen, bathrooms, and an auxiliary room for meeting and meals.

The Open Drawing Studio Project offers this space to professional artists from all disciplines who want to take a break from their private studios and production work and key back into the fine art of drawing.   Students and anyone interested in taking a serious crack at drawing are invited to share in this open studio environment.

Thank you for backing this project and for investing in the potential of those that come to the studio!

See the video about this project at Kickstarter.

Open studio drawing for students and professionals:  figure, still life, plein air, architectural, landscape, abstract.

Three sessions daily:  9am – Noon; 2pm – 5pm; 7pm – 10pm.  Wednesdays through Sundays, August 3rd through 28th.
