Drawing at the Rooster

August 18 was my first time "Drawing at the Rooster" (DATR) and I had a blast. I have not sketched models since high school in Miss Kertesz' life drawing class!

On the DATR facebook page it says, "Drawing at the Rooster is a monthly life drawing event. There are multiple live models (clothed/costumed) that will do a variety of short and long poses. Each event has a different theme! 

 Drawing at the Rooster is a no cover event, and is a creative, non-judgmental environment where artists of all skill levels will have an opportunity to practice their life drawing skills. Bring your own sketchbook and be sure to come a bit early to ensure you get a good seat. 

 Please post pictures or sketches from Drawing at the Rooster Events! As always, there are food and beverage specials too".

The DATR facebook group has 336 members!

A LOT of folks showed up to sketch. There were three models: Emilie, Karen and Sarah who each posed for a 2 minute, 3 minute, 5 minute and then a 20 minute pose.

Model #1 - Emilie

At the end of the evening there is an optional contest for the best sketch. The artists, if they chooose to participate, all pick their favourite sketch of the night and the best sketch of them all (democratically voted on) wins a gift certificate for the Atomic Rooster.

The beautiful sketch that won!!!
I had a blast and I am looking forward to September's "Drawing at the Rooster"!
