Phat Figures

Social Sketching

First Tuesday of each month from 7-9pm at Phat Thai in Carbondale

Social Sketching returns to Phat Thai on the first Tuesday of the month, from 7 to 9pm.
For those of you who do not already know, Phat Figures isn’t your run-of-the-mill figure drawing session. Have a drink, grab some food, chat with friends and bow out if a pose doesn’t pique your interest. It’s okay to just sit back and enjoy because our models not only know how to hold a pose but they sing, play music, dance…
We’ll provide materials, but bring your own if you are picky. There is a suggested donation of $5 to help pay for the modeling talent. Facilitated by Philip Hone Williams, hosted by Phat Thai, and organized by CCAH!
For more information contact CCAH at 970.963.1680 or visit carbondalearts.com. Reservations are recommended. To reserve a table call Phat Thai at (970) 963-7001.
