Life Drawing Studio 11:00am - 2:00pm | Bailey Contemporary Arts, 41 NE 1st Street

Life Drawing, also referred to as Figure Drawing, is the best and quickest way to improve your drawing skills and your visual perception. Life drawing trains your eye to catch things that photos do not show. Therefore learning to master figure drawing is more than bones and muscles, it is about the subtle differences and minor details such as weight-bearing and positioning that translates to all forms.

We are excited to be able to bring this opportunity to all artists through our new Life Drawing Studio at Bailey Contemporary Arts in the City of Pompano Beach.

During this 2-hour session, live models pose draped for short "gesture" as well as longer poses. This program is ideal for individuals interested in portrait painting, character design, illustration, animation, anatomical drawing, however ALL artists benefit from Life Drawing sessions.

Artists are invited to bring their own materials and supplies.

This activity doesn’t provide formal instruction; participants work at their own pace and in their preferred medium.

Space available for 6 participants per session, so register early!

General Admission $20
Students $10

Happy Together 8:00pm | The Amp (Pompano Beach Amphitheater), 1806 NE 6th St

Music fans have been enjoying the hits of the sixties and seventies since the Summer of Love and beyond. They get to relive those moments on the renowned Happy Together Tour 2019, which is going on its 10th consecutive year. This summer, the Happy Together Tour returns with six headline artists who delivered the biggest hits of the era:

The Turtles, Chuck Negron, formerly of Three Dog Night, Gary Puckett & The Union Gap, The Buckinghams, The Classics IV and The Cowsills. The Turtles continue to be the signature headliners of the Happy Together Tour. As always, Mark Volman will bring his infamous antics to the stage along with the Archie’s Ron Dante (who will again be replacing Howard Kaylan). Together they will be performing all of the Turtles’ magical Top 40 Hits including “It Ain’t Me Babe,” “Elenore,” “She’d Rather Be With Me,” “You Showed Me”, The Archies’ mega-hit “Sugar Sugar,” and the title of the tour “Happy Together.”

Chuck Negron, formerly of Three Dog Night, is back on the Happy Together Tour due to popular demand! He brings Three Dog Night’s biggest hits to the stage, including “Joy To The World,” “Mama Told Me Not To Come,” “Shambala,” “One”, “Easy To Be Hard” among others.

Gary Puckett & The Union Gap is thrilled to be on the Happy Together Tour again. Gary’s trademark voice will be belting out his hits one more time. Fans will affectionately remember “Young Girl,” “Over You” “Woman, Woman”, “This Girl Is A Woman Now”, “Lady Willpower”, “Don’t Give In To Him” and more.

The Buckinghams will be back on the tour for the first time in five years!

The band formed in 1966, and went on to become one of the top selling acts of 1967, including their #1 hit “Kind of a Drag,” and other hits “Don’t You Care,” ”Mercy, Mercy, Mercy” and "Hey Baby, They're Playing Our Song" With 3 chart hits at one time on 2 labels, in 1967, Billboard Magazine named them "The Most Listened to Band in America."

The Classics IV is the newest addition to the Happy Together lineup. With their southern soft rock sound, they are one of the most popular and influential pop groups of the 60s and 70s. They achieved phenomenal success with multiplatinum hits “Spooky,” “Stormy,” “Traces,” and Everyday With You Girl.”

The Cowsills have been dazzling crowds the last four years on the Happy Together Tour with their effervescent brand of contagious pop magic. Bob, Paul and Susan Cowsill are a family singing group and the original inspiration for television’s, The Partridge Family. Best known for songs “The Rain, The Park and Other Things,” “Hair,” “Indian Lake” and “Love American Style.” The Cowsills appeared on numerous TV shows including The Ed Sullivan Show and The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson.

The Happy Together Tour began in 1984 with mainstays The Turtles. It started up again in 2010 with 2019 being its 10th anniversary year. The overwhelming response and love for the music has endured and The Happy Together Tour 2019 brings that magic back to fans, night after night!

Tickets priced at $64.50, $49.50, $39.50 and $29.50 will be available at pbamp.com or at the Pompano Beach Cultural Center Box Office Monday through Friday from 10am – 6pm located at: 50 W.

Trying new things has been proven to make you more creative, and it’s good for your brain. So each Wednesday we offer a new way to nourish your soul & get creative at The Bailey Contemporary Arts during your lunch hour…and it’s FREE!

No two weeks are the same as each new workshop offers a different creative experience and encourages you to step out of the mundane and explore your potential. Each simple, hands-on project becomes an escape from the daily stresses of life and reminds you how beauty can be found in even the most simplest of projects.

Guests are invited to bring their lunch, or grab a bite to eat from Blooming Bean Coffee Roasters, located in our West Gallery.

To ensure that everyone has an equal opportunity to enjoy this program, seats will be available on a First-Come, First-Serve Basis, and Space Is Limited! However, even if our workshop reaches capacity, guests are able to explore the newest exhibits in our gallery, take the time to learn about upcoming programs, workshops, volunteer opportunities, and spend some time enjoying a coffee while unwinding in our West Gallery.

Free wifi available. Please feel free to call us with any questions: 954-284-0141
