Gage Academy Drawing Jam

The Drawing Jam at the Gage Academy was crazy wild! At first I could not decide if I wanted to sketch models or the venue. As it was a chilly 19 degrees outside, I was not going to sketch the exterior building!

I found a warm place to sit in the Skinner Auditorium and sketched the musicians playing at 10:00am, then decided to sketch the sketcher near the easel who was sketching the musician.

Then models climbed on the tables for gesture sketching. I tried to capture the hiker with the trekking poles, but as the models changed every five minutes, I decided to concentrate on the sketchers in the background and part of the balcony windows.

Challenges were using pencil rather than black pen, and having to move my chair repeatedly as the room got more crowded. 
Thanks to my friend, Clive Lissaman,  Arts Education Specialist at the Gage Academy, for providing me with tickets!
