Join us for celebrity life drawing series capturing the poses of local “celebrities” at CSA. This month’s special guest model is Alan Sanborn.
Alan Sanborn has lived in Canaan, Maine for most of his life and hails from Southern Maine. He moved to Central Maine with his wife Sam in the 1970s and they built their own home, complete with goats, a mule, geese and dogs. (Oh! they had some lovely kids too!) In 1978, he and his partners opened the Railroad Square Cinema, a small independent theater in Waterville which has won recognition nationally. The national recognition just confirms what we all know, that Railroad Square is a beloved institution that many of us cannot live without. Movies are a huge part of Alan’s life and he is passionate about bringing great film to the community of Waterville. Come draw Alan in his awesome old time movie get up on June 19th! ( there will be snacks!)
