Dec. 16 Drink ’N Draw New BLK Gallery, 1213 Jones St. 8-10p.m., 19+, $5, thenewblk.com If you were expecting this event to be an opportunity to draw a penis on the face of your passed out friend, you’ve been mistaken. The New BLK Gallery presents the adult alternative, Drink ’N Draw, a dynamic and refreshing take on the model art class. Whether you’re a cartoonist or painter, artists over the age of 19 are welcome to bring their supplies and drinks to bring “an alternative approach to a classic creative activity,” explains the gallery’s Shane Bainbridge. In conjunction with their current interactive exhibit, Mind & Body , the event displays two live nude models, one male and one female, from the artists’ perception, which should be interesting given the unconventional and BYOB setting. Co-coordinator Sally Deskins (a Reader contributor), a figure model herself, explains “drawing the human form in its essence is very inspiring, so we hope the event is just as much.” Supplies and drinks will be provided, and donations are accepted to keep novelty art events like this alive and thriving.
