“I sometimes think there is nothing so delightful as drawing.” -Vincent van Gogh

Mark your calendars for the 2015 Drawing Jam, happening on Saturday, December 5, from 9AM to 7PM. Make plans now to bring the whole family to the annual community celebration of music, art and creativity at the Gage building on Capitol Hill, 1501 10th AVE E, next to St. Mark’s Cathedral.

Spend an hour – or the entire day – but don’t miss one of the most eclectic art events in the Northwest.

Live models, live music, open studios and art activities for the whole family – plus, a great assortment of some of Seattle’s finest food trucks!

Art Supplies are FREE!

A wide variety of drawing materials will be provided at no cost, and each studio will be filled with easels waiting for artists.

Drawing Jam features a cast of over 50 models throughout the building – including dancers, musicians and costumed performers serving as gesture models, and nude figure models available for traditional sessions.

Costumed models include the “Costumed Stars of Seattle” – a group of local celebrities, which in the past have included performers from Teatro ZinZanni, Nancy Guppy, the Pacific Northwest Ballet, and the SeaFair Pirates.

Bring the Whole Family!

Named a “must do event” by Seattle Magazine, this family-friendly event provides both kids and teens with their own dedicated spaces to draw, paint and create, as well as the opportunity to participate in activities throughout the building.

Plus, local artists and Gage instructors demonstrate drawing, painting and sculpting techniques throughout the day; and studios will be available for open use. Free parking provided.
