Southtown Yoga Artists sketch yogis in poses while Debby Siegel shoots photos.


In groups of six, we’ll begin by warming up the body in a 20 minute yoga class in Southtown’s Studio A, and then head into Studio B to pose for one of six sketch artist groups. There will be six stations set up in the studio. You’ll choose one location and stay there for your creation. Several artists will capture two various poses of you. 

Gesture: Choose an asana that you can hold for 2 minutes for a gesture piece. This will be a rough sketch, capturing the energy of you.

Render: Next choose a yoga posture you can hold pretty well for up to 20 minutes. You will be allowed breaks but need to be able to replicate the posture easily. This will be a more refined charcoal rendering of you. 

Photos: I will be shooting images of yogis in poses as well. You will receive 2 high resolution, edited photographs released for your usage. 

yoga poses sketched by artists make a great holiday gift


Ryan Greis, founder of Drawn Studio will be supplying 4 horse easels, 6 standard easels, drawing boards and folding chairs. Artists will select one of six spots in the spacious, well-lit yoga studio at Southtown (no shoes in the studio). First round, your yoga model will pose for a two-minute gesture piece. And then they’ll select a pose that they can either easily hold for up to 20 minutes or one that they’re comfortable holding for longer periods but may need a little break or two during.

Bring your medium / drawing supplies, paper & drawing tools.
