The Draw-A-Thon, which is hosted by the Foundation Art Department, has become a tradition at Pratt and throughout the New York art community. Throughout the evening and into the night, 21 models circulated throughout the drawing studios in Pratt's Main Building. Specific studios were dedicated to poses ranging from the energy and frenzy of fast action poses, to sessions of five minutes, twenty minutes, and one-hour duration. There was also the opportunity to work from extended poses of three and six hours. The event culminated in a grand finale in which all of the models pose together in continuous slow motion on the same model stand to the accompaniment of live African drum music.
