Arts Unlimited of Renton is calling all quick draw artists to its “Sketchy Artists Wanted” event.

The evening of live sketch sessions is 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., March 29, at Delancey’s on Third, 810 S. Third St., Renton.

The organization wanted to do a new take on the nude or partially clothed live sketch session idea and came up with this Western-themed event.

“Arts Unlimited wanted to create a different type of sketch event that could be fun for all ages,” said Paul Hebron, Arts Unlimited president, in an email. “We came up with the idea to use actors in costume.”

For their first event, the organization has partnered with the 425 Theatre Project to present the three actors and sketch subjects, all dressed in Western attire. Attendees are invited to come with their own sketch materials to draw the improv actors, who will perform skits representing that genre.

Delancey’s on Third will provide the food and drinks for purchase. Daniel Smith Artists Materials will provide prizes for participants.

Arts Unlimited received grants from 4 Culture and the City of Renton Municipal Arts Commission for the event and organizers plan to throw similar quick-sketch events with different themes in the future.

“Imagine the fun with live sketch events themed with actors in costumes performing and representing these genres Western, Steampunk, SciFi, and Murder Mystery, etc.,” said Hebron. “We’re all super excited to make this happen.”

Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for students with identification.
