We are proud to finally start our own artist meet-up group--Empires's Comics Artist Meet-Up!
Every Tuesday night, starting at 5pm, artists trickle in to spend some time drawing together.
Better yet, twice a month we’ll have two features you won’t want to miss — artist instruction from a local, successful creator, or a live model for you to sketch, paint, etc.
What To Expect Each Week
Here’s the schedule:
- 1st Tuesday of each month -- Work Night
- 2nd Tuesday of each month -- Artist Instructor or Interview
- 3rd Tuesday of each month -- Work Night
- LAST Tuesday of each month -- Live model
Our first live model is Tuesday, March 31. Cover charge, payable upon entry, is $10.
Note: In month’s with five Tuesday, the 4th Tuesday will be a work night and the last Tuesday will be the live model.

Our Long Tradition of Supporting Sacramento Creatives
We've long been supporters of local creatives, be they writers, artists or comic book creators.
From our Mini-Cons (Creative Women Mini-Con and FCBD Mini-Con) and in-store art gallery to 24 Hour Comic Day and National Novel Writing Month, we love creatives.
Also, for years, the Sacramento Comicbook Creators Group has met at Empire's on Tuesday nights, and they've supporting numerous artists and comic book creatives in bringing their creative works to life.
Currently on Wednesday mornings a group of artists meet in Empire’s Comics Lounge to sketch and draw and learn from each other.
Finally, this year, with a more open space and the addition of Empire's Comics Lounge and Empire's Art Gallery, we decided it was time to start our very own art group.
Whether you’re currently an artist or just now picking up the pencil and sketch pad, we welcome you to join us.
