About this project
- OPEN to anyone and everyone looking to draw
- DRAWING models, still-lifes, architecture, abstract
- STUDIO a public space stocked with drawing materials & equipment
- PROJECT starts August 3rd and ends August 28th
The Open Drawing Studio Project takes over a vacant space owned by St. Peter’s Church in Morristown, New Jersey. An artistically minded congregation has invited us to reinvent a portion of an underused building on the campus for the month of August 2011.
Models for both life drawing and portraiture, still-lifes, and the amazing surrounding architecture will provide instructional and inspirational content. Materials will be available for drop-in drawers and easels and tables for setting up personal workspaces. There’s a kitchen, bathrooms, and an auxiliary room for meeting and meals.
The Open Drawing Studio Project offers this space to professional artists from all disciplines who want to take a break from their private studios and production work and key back into the fine art of drawing. Students and anyone interested in taking a serious crack at drawing are invited to share in this open studio environment.
Thank you for backing this project and for investing in the potential of those that come to the studio!

Call us: 770.853.9727 for more info about joining the project in person. Take yourself on vacation this summer to the Open Drawing Studio- We would LOVE to have you!
Every evening, unless there is a special event (see below) and Thursday afternoons, we will have nude models for life drawing. If there is a model you've been working with and you want me to book that person for the studio, give a ring and we'll make it happen.
On the 12th and 19th, Dr. Sketchy North Jersey will be hosting Drawing Parties... There will be two models in costume. The first night is themed 'Famous Painters' and the second night is going to be 'Circus'! FUN FUN FUN!!!
On the 27th from we'll be open the morning session but then from Noon-Night will move the project to 'Green on the Green,' a Sustainability Festival in Morristown just a couple blocks away. We'll have easels and pairs of chairs set up for portraiture. Lots of people will attend this community event and we can take advantage of those smiling faces by drawing drawing drawing... All our artists are invited to set up their personal art booths to participate formally in the Festival.
Saturday afternoons we'll have one person sitting for portraiture. On Friday afternoons we'll try to always have two people sitting together.
A suggested contribution of $10 per session is out there for those able to pay to attend... but the Open Drawing Studio Project is for everyone who would like to participate, regardless of that ability to pay.
