Las Cruxes Presents: Drawing Salon x Life Drawing
Monday, February 20 - 7-9 pm
The premise for Drawing Salon is simple: get a group of people together, draw the same images, compare. These small strictures produce manifold results. You must use ink, to make you commit to your mistakes, and you must draw what everyone else is drawing. It doesn't have to look good, it just has to look like a drawing. We'll provide a series of thematically-linked images, and we pass those around, each attempting to draw them. At the end of the night, it is fun to compare the different ways that everyone drew.
We are pleased to host Ikee Cosby and Cecilia Maeve, who will provide this session's images/live models. We look forward to seeing you and feel free to BYOB.
Special thanks to Theodore Ward Barrow for introducing Drawing Salon to our space.

Las Cruxes Mixtape Club No. 14 - One Instrument
Wednesday, February 22 - 6-8 pm
Join us for Mixtape Club, a monthly meeting, free and open to the public. Mixtape Club is not only inviting, but encouraging of all genres.
How it works: Compile a tape (CD's also welcome), bring 1-2 copies, and swap with a fellow member. You can also mail in your mix if you live out of town. Each meeting we'll have casual discussion and introduce or vote on a theme.
Theme: One Instrument - The idea is to pick one instrument to base your songs around. That instrument should be the focal and/or leading character of each song. Think outside the box. Say you decide to use vocals as an instrument, don't simply focus on lyrical ability, perhaps look into throat singing around the globe. We are optimistic that this theme will inspire you to discover new music, and perhaps view songs you've always loved in a different light.
*Personal and communal snacks and beverages are welcome. Tunes provided from our music collection. We look forward to seeing you all. JOIN THE GROUP PAGE
Mar 15 - Mixtape Club 15: Theme TBD, 6-8pm
*Dates are tentative
