Stamford, CT - The Loft Artists Association invites people of all ages to participate in two “Free Community Drawing Events” to be held Saturday March 17 and Saturday March 24 from 12 to 3:30 pm at 575 Pacific Street.
“We are excited to again open our studios and galleries to the public for two Saturday afternoons focused on the art of drawing. LAA artists are thrilled to share their skills and techniques in a variety of informal as well as small workshop settings.” says LAA Co-Director, Mark Macrides. The artists will be available throughout the afternoon offering tips and instruction in what has become a very dynamic and energetic annual event. This is a great opportunity to experience a family afternoon centered on the art of drawing!
One of the event highlights is the annual graffiti wall, where participants can sketch their ideas right on the wall! Live models from the Ballet School of Stamford will pose with LAA artists providing drawing instruction. A variety of still life set ups and portrait models will be accessible in various places. Smaller and more formal workshops with instruction on perspective, pastel and portraiture will also be offered. Drawing tools and paper will be available in the galleries.
There is free parking, and handicapped access is available by appointment. For directions and more information visit loftartists.org.
