The good luck charms of some are small enough to fit in a pocket or wear around the neck. Other charms are bigger, like the one that characterizes the tiny village of Mons, Belgium. Each year, the townsfolk re-enact the notorious battle between good & evil, with St George astride his horse, valiantly battling the Dragon. First performed in 1349 to cure the village of the Black Death, this charm obviously works, as the town has not suffered from the Plague since.
This yearly re-enactment of the battle of St. George and the Dragon also celebrates the triumph of bravery over fear. Even if you think that you can’t draw, take inspiration from St. George, and join us on Thursday May 18th, when we’ll celebrate bravery with an evening of judgement-free LIFE DRAWING.
$12 – for a beer and a Life Drawing Session* with a live model. Materials and instruction provided. You bring your courage to try something new. *Life Drawing Sessions are 1 hour: 6-7pm, 7-8pm, or 8-9pm. All artistic abilities welcome.
Thursday, May 18th, 7-9pm
