Dranks and Draws

At Era Art Bar.

Massive, the combination barber shop, lifestyle boutique, and art gallery in Old Oakland, is kicking off a monthly sketch night — figure drawing, not comedy — at Era Art Bar (19 Grand Ave., Oakland) on Monday, April 11. At the event, which will take place every second Monday of the month, attendees will be invited to draw a live model — not nude, but with tight-fitting clothing as to optimally showcase the human form. (For the first event, that model will be local performance artist Erin J aka Sugar Cane Jane.) The bar will serve up cocktail specials and there will be monthly musical guests. The first session will feature local DJ and producer Trackademicks. The event is a collaboration between Massive, the art gallery 1 AM Oakland, the art collective Haus of Godspeed, and the lifestyle brands Team Terrible and Dreamers Rule. With all of those creative networks intersecting, this is destined to be a popular recurring event for Oakland’s art community. And for those who aren’t sure that figure drawing is for them — know that it’s fun to watch and easy to pick up.
