Create art and network with new and gifted artists in an inspiring, high-energy atmosphere

Artists from the College and the community are invited to draw, paint, and sculpt at a 12-hour figure-drawing marathon from noon to midnight Saturday, Feb. 28, at the Williams Visual Arts Building.

Ten male and female models at three modeling stations will inspire artists with poses ranging from short and dynamic gestures to extended poses, including portrait studies. Tables, easels, drawing horses, and basic drawing supplies will be available.

The event is sponsored by the art department’s Community-Based Teaching Program and fine-arts model Patricia Sonne. Beverages and bagels will be provided. Attendees are asked to bring a hearty dish, salad, or dessert to share. The snow date is Sunday, March 1.

Advance registration is required. The registration fee is $25 per artist if paid by Feb. 14, $35 after that date. Full-time students may attend at no charge, but must register. To register, contact Sonne, (610) 216-5707 or

“It’s an opportunity to create and network with new and gifted artists alike in Lafayette’s inspiring, high-energy atmosphere,” Sonne says. “Come and enjoy the camaraderie.”

The Community-Based Teaching Program, directed by Jim Toia, is a center of creativity for students and art enthusiasts in the community. For more information on events, including free Thursday-night figure-study sessions, contact Toia, (610) 330-5577 or
