Upcoming Sketch Nights

November 21st, 2019

421 East 6th Street | New York, NY 10009

6:00pm – 7:00pm

Join us for this uninstructed Sketch Night at The Brant Foundation’s East Village location, featuring David Altmejd’s “The Island.” Altmejd’s larger-than-life sculpture is an amalgamation of mediums and objects that resemble a human figure. A student of biology, Altmejd’s figure has humanoid qualities as well as architectural and landscape elements. The ‘body’ is a dynamic figure with exposed elements which allow participants to stretch their creative faculties beyond what is typical of figure or sculpture drawing. Altmejd’s sculpture presents a unique and exciting challenge, and we encourage participants of all levels to join this sketch night.

Please bring your own materials. Paint and charcoal are prohibited. Easels and chairs will be provided.
