Sip, Sketch & Socialize: Drawing with Juan William Chávez

Join us for an evening of drawing inspired by the exhibition PINNED! A Designer Chess Challenge and Saint Louis fashion history. Artist Juan William Chávez is back by popular demand, this time with a focus on contour drawings. We’ll start with some quick drawing exercises in the gallery, and then explore shape, color, and pattern as we draw from a shoe still life in the studio. Juan William Chávez is an artist and cultural activist. He is the founder and director of Northside Workshop, a non-profit art space dedicated to addressing cultural and community issues in North Saint Louis. Chávez also teaches Conceptual Drawing, Digital Drawing, and Artists Working in the Public Realm courses at Webster University.

*Free for World Chess Hall of Fame members.

Hors d’oeuvres and refreshments are provided.
