(Please advise if this link is no good)BIG Draw- St Patrick's Square
BIG Draw is a urban sketch meet up where artists get together and do drawings on location of buildings, people, landscapes etc... This is a free event and suitable for all ages. Locations change every month, and it's run by Eric, who also co-ordinates with events going on in Auckland. This event is great for those of you wantint to just sit down and draw in the sun.
Please bring drawing stuff- bringing an easy to move chair is a great idea for comfort, but not essential as you'll be moving around every 15 minutes or so.
Facebook event:- [link]Dr Sketchy- A very Merry pin-up Christmas
Date:- Tuesday, 4th December 2012 at 7pm
Location:- The Wine Cellar, St Kevin's Arcade, 183 Karangagape Road, Auckland, New Zealand
Dr Sketchies is an international event dubbed as "Anti-art school". The idea behind this gathering is to provide life drawing lessons at an affordable price so that ANYONE can afford it. This is an AWESOME event, and I strongly suggest anyone that can come along does. I've been to one Dr Sketchy event and they're very fun and relaxed. The models are fun, they're all clothed in interesting outfits, and there's prizes /competitions for drawing cooky art.
There's a $10 door charge to feed the model, and the location is in front of a bar so if you wish to partake in beverages, you can. Bring drawing supplies, and your fun self for a fantastic night!
