Lounge | DRAWN TO DETROIT: SC Sketch Session ArtistsWednesday, May 24-Saturday, July 8, 2017
Reception: Friday May 26, 5-8 pm

Ronnie Frey, John, Pen and ink

Since its founding in 1907, the Scarab Club has hosted figure drawing sessions with live models. Founding members knew the importance of mastering the figure and decided to pool their resources to pay for models. We are proud to host an annual exhibition showcasing the work participating artists have created during the sessions.

The 3-hour sessions are free to SC members and full-time students, with all others paying a fee of $10. The sessions are not instructional, but provide an opportunity for artists of all skill levels to independently draw live models. Easels, benches and tables are provided and artists bring their own materials, in order to paint or sketch.

Weekly sketch session calendar:

Thursdays, 7-10 pm – Life Model (nude model)
10 am-1 pm – Costume Model
1:30-4:30 pm – Life Model
Sundays, 1:30-4:30 pm – Life Model
