If an artistic endeavor was part of your New Year’s resolutions, here is your chance to make it happen. Grab your sketchbook and head over to the Q.arma Building in Northeast for an evening of figure drawing with Altered Esthetics. Before you feel daunted by the artistic talent perhaps required, here’s the lighthearted twist: the volunteer models will be dressed in a costume either from home or from the Northeast Minneapolis Art Association’s collection. Draw the costume-wearing models in a variety of poses, or if you’re more interested in being the model in costume, contact the NEMAA. The event will take place weekly, so you’ll have plenty of opportunities to fine-tune your art skills. 6:30 p.m. Suggested donation: $3. —RO
