Bravo to Gage Academy for putting on another fantastic Drawing Jam! For the 15th year, Gage brought together models (clothed, unclothed and fantastically costumed), demos, still lifes, plaster casts, a table of mirrors for self-portraits, kids’ activities, food trucks, live music and free art materials from local sponsors – all adding up to a 12-hour day of art fun for only $10! I’m sure it’s a ton of work for Gage and all the volunteers who make it happen, but every time I attend I think about how wonderful it would be if Drawing Jam could happen more than just once a year.
As usual, I spent most of my time in the various life drawing studios (sketches on my personal blog). But when I couldn’t get a good view of the models or if I was just tired of drawing them, I stayed in back and sketched other artists or even the musicians who entertained us as we sketched.
