Gage Academy of Art's 12th Annual Drawing Jam is only a few days away! If you like to draw, you've probably already purchased your ticket. Models include Sylvia O’Stayformore, Seafair Pirates, and cast members from The Schoolyand's production of Rocky Horror Picture Show.
Named a “must-do event” by Seattle Magazine, the Drawing Jam features free art supplies, food, dozens of models, music and three floors of space — and now the event is expanding to the Skinner Auditorium next to Gage. Dancers, musicians and performers act as gesture models, figure models pose up to an hour at a time, and costumed portrait models sit for drawing.
This all day event (9am - 9pm Saturday) is family friendly, with special studios for kids and teens. New this year is the addition of the Gage Artist Happy Hour, curated by Klara Glosova and Sierra Stinson (which had its debut at this year's City Arts Festival).
They're still looking for some more volunteers, especially evening shifts. I volunteered last year and had a great time. Plus, they'll give you drinks and a commemorative t-shirt.
