Special Drawing Sessions
Join Drawing New York for our first Selfless Portrait™ Night. Attendees will pose for each other throughout the night in 20-minute poses. 25% of the evening’s proceeds will be donated to Smile Train, a charity that Drawing New York donates to regularly.
50 people gathered to paint in the park together. Afterward, everyone returned to Jerry’s at 111 4th Avenue for the raffle of a Julian French Easel, and a $100 and $50 gift certificate.
Thanks to the generosity of Michael Arenella and his team at The Jazz Age Lawn Party, Drawing New York will have three artists available for hire to draw attendees in their jazzy finery. We highly encourage you to attend this amazing event and visit us there to say hello!
