Figure Drawing Open Studios

No instruction
Thursdays 6-9pm, starting Jan. 11
One month (4 sessions): $40 member / $60 non-member
Drop-ins: $15

Join us every Thursday night to draw or paint from live models. We work independently, listen to music, and socialize when we feel like it. A relaxed and lighthearted atmosphere is our MO. This is a judgment-free zone open to professionals, hobbyists, and those anywhere in between. New artists are always welcome. Go to for details on specific sessions.

The first half of each class consists of mostly shorter poses, 2 to 20 minutes in length, allowing participants to warm up and practice foundational skills such as gesture and directional strokes. The second half emphasizes honing one’s understanding of such concepts as line quality, proportion, and value. It consists of one, hour-and-a-half-long pose with breaks every 20 minutes. Most sessions feature a nude model, but at least one a month will feature a clothed model, ideal for costume portraiture. Open to all levels and media. Art Center members receive a discount when they enroll in Figure Drawing for a whole month. See below for dates and pricing.
