I’ve been seeing stars for a few days. I felt like I needed to work on some eye-hand coordination to where it was. Then I discovered it, an opened figure drawing session out in Park Slope.
For 8 dollars, you get to sit in this laid-back studio with about 10 other people for two and a half hours with a nude model. No one is telling you how to draw; you don’t have to talk to anyone if you don’t want to. And did I mention wine?
Too good to be true? It’s not.
It felt good. It felt right, unlike everything else in my life. For those two and a half hours, I’ve gained a part of myself back.
…And it’s fantastic to know I’m still here.
