You can sketch your own projects, work on random still life setups, capture bar scenes, or use music its self as a model of sound to translate into a 2-dimensional image. When you need a break, you can always go upstairs & dance for a while. There are awesome DJs there for Motown On Monday dance party in the loft as well as drinks priced right. But if you're not into intoxication, that's ok too.Please bring your own supplies and a book light. (you won't be able to see if you don't bring a light with you).
