EAC’s next monthly Draw-a-Thon, a virtual program co-hosted by Anne Shields Hopkins, EAC’s life drawing workshop organizer, and Mark Macey, EAC and Stage East’s Island Institute Fellow, is Saturday, July 25, from 7:30-9:30. All are welcome to participate in the “pay if you are able event”, which uses the Zoom platform to create an evening both festive and intimate. Each month, the Draw-a-Thon creates a space for artists to draw models and performers in real time, and begins with a series of short ‘gesture’ poses for the artists to warm up.

Anne noted that participants needn’t be artists, and that all community members are welcome to come and engage with the event, whether to try their hand at drawing, or to sit and work on a craft or other task in company. Anne related an anecdote of an extreme example of non-art-based participation in the event: their brother-in-law, a musician at last month’s event, after his performance remained on the Zoom call (on mute!) while resuming work on a household demolition project.
