Grotesque Burlesque Figure Drawing

  • ars memoria 1770 West Berteau Avenue Chicago, IL, 60613 United States (map)

Please come join us for an evening of figure drawing for only $10!
Doors at 7PM - NO SOONER, session begins at 7:30.
BYOB, snacks and art supplies.

We are a tight-knit group of artists of every level who have been meeting weekly since July of 2013. We’re serious
about what we do, but we don’t take ourselves too seriously. We encourage casual conversation during our sessions,
and there is often a lot of laughter and (sometimes bawdy) humor from both the artists and the models. We like to
have fun! We welcome everyone, and our group ranges from professional illustrators to those without any drawing
background at all. Our only rules are that the conversation remains respectful towards everyone, especially our
models, and that everyone in attendance must participate – no spectators are allowed.

There is ample parking around Ars Memoria, a divvy docking station, and it's a quick walk from both the Irving Park and and Montrose Brown Line stops. Once you get to the building, dial for suite 506 and (once buzzed in) use either the stairs or the elevator to get to the 5th floor and follow the signs to GB.
