Come join us in the studio for a life drawing study facilitated by local artist, Marko Head. In the first hour, we’ll warm-up with gesture drawing before we move our focus to longer poses in the last two hours. Each week the model will pick their favorite drawing and the winner will receive a prize. BYOB, must show your ID to drink.

Participants must bring their own supplies. All skill levels welcome.


SUBMIT YOUR EVENT

Does your organization have an event idea but no way or nowhere to execute it? The Greater Denton Arts Council wants to make your dream a reality. Every Thursday the Patterson-Appleton Arts Center stays open late to support community programs and draw people together through the arts by providing space and publicity and collaborating on educational visions as needed. Thursday evenings at PAAC create connections between artists, activists, and art enthusiasts to bond the community, highlight efforts, and call attention to available resources.

GDAC does not charge for use of the facility on these evenings, however, every event must be free and open to the public. Submit a proposal to education@dentonarts.com to be considered for a evening program. In your proposal, please include all pertinent details. The earlier you propose your idea, the more likely you’ll be to secure your desired date.
