Where Have All the Creative Types Gone?

Do booze and creativity go hand in hand? We don’t know if it’s been scientifically proven, but we do know of some pretty bad-ass bibulous artists. Van Gogh, for example, drank absinthe and created Starry Night. OK, so you might think that’s a bad example because he cut off his left lobe and mailed it to a brothel wench. How about Picasso? Also a drinker. His parting words were, "Drink to me, drink to my health, you know I can't drink any more." Every Tuesday, it’s time to do more than toast to these masters: let’s aspire to be them at Drink ’N’ Draw. From 7 to 10 p.m., 18 Rabbit (18 NW First St., Fort Lauderdale) will provide the beer, the space, and the model — for 10 bucks.“We’re welcoming people of all skill levels,” says Leah Brown, the gallery director, “from stick-men-only to trained professionals, to come draw from a live model.” Bring with you the tools or drawing materials of your choice — pencils, charcoal, pastel, even clay — and for each session, two models will be present. Release that creative genuis — there will be no formal instruction. E-mail [email protected] to RSVP. Call 954-990-4315, or visit 18rabbitgallery.com.
Tuesdays, 7 p.m. Starts: March 30. Continues through July 27, 2010
