The PopUp is dedicated to supporting the creative community in spirit and in action. Courtney Young, a regular figure model in her earlier life, was recently diagnosed with stage 3 Triple Negative Breast Cancer right around her 30th birthday. She is undergoing a double mastectomy on July 23rd. After undergoing eight aggressive rounds of chemotherapy and as part of her journey to victory, she’s excited to pose the day before her surgery as a way to celebrate “her body and her most natural state,” as she puts it.
We would love to see the creative community come together and do what it does best: support an artist via an outpouring of art and community spirit. We hope to draw talented artist from around the city who’s work from the evening will be used as the basis for a PopUp exhibit.
All artist must bring their own drawing supplies, easels, and drawing boards. This will be a nude figure drawing class with two separate poses. Please keep this in mind and remain respectful.
In the spirit of community and healing, there is no cost to participate.
