NEW CANAAN, Conn. -- Silvermine Arts Center's popular Draw Until You Drop! is a day-long art studio event open to the New Canaan community. The next session will be on Saturday, April 2.

Artists of all levels are invited to sessions of continuous, intensive figure drawing with models in sustained poses or short athletic poses. There are also pairs of models as well as still life setups offered both in the morning and afternoon.

This enjoyable day begins with coffee and muffins and ends with a wine and cheese reception where participants may exhibit their artwork.

The morning program runs from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., followed by a lunch break (bring your own) and an afternoon session from 2:00 to 5:30 pm.

The exhibit and end-of-the-day reception take place between 5:30 and 6:00 p.m. Participants work alongside Silvermine faculty, guild artist members and students to develop their skills and artistic vision.

Faculty members are available to offer guidance or answer questions. A full day is $30; a half day $15. Registration in advance is encouraged, but artists may also register the day of the event.

Walk-ins are welcome. Tables, easels, drawing horses, drawing boards and basic drawing supplies will be available.
