Nude Life Drawing Sessions Every Wednesday   
Wednesday afternoon- 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Wednesday evening- 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Please take note the Wednesday evening life drawing session is now 6pm-9pm.

Figure drawing is a cornerstone of artistic training. The figure presents many technical issues including form, structure, foreshortening and more. Stripped of the cultural baggage of clothing, the nude figure can express every aspect of humanity, from the heroic to the pathetic.

Join us every Wednesday for our life drawing session that focuses on the figure. This uninstructed session is great for students young and old. Starting with shorter poses to warm up your artistic brain, we range from 2 minute poses to 20 minute poses. All mediums are welcome. Easels, benches, and refreshments are provided. Please bring your own paper and drawing materials. Derwent has provided Charcoal, Pastel, Graphite and other drawing pencils for attendees to try out during the session.

We request courtesy, maturity, and respect to the model and other artists. Photography is not allowed. We promote an open atmosphere where artists can interact, view, discuss, and encourage each other. Please note that models are subject to change without notice.

Registration is $15 per person, per session. $45 for four sessions (buy three get one free), $75 for 8 sessions (buy five get three free) valid for Wednesday and Sunday sessions! When you sign up for either pass, stop by Art Supply Warehouse to pick up your pass for entry to the life drawing session. Limited seats are available, sign up today!

Nude/Costumed Long Pose Life Drawing Sessions Every Sunday   
Sundays 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Join us Sunday evenings for long pose sessions. During this session the model will strike one pose for the entire session. This allows the attendee to make an advanced study of the figure or portrait. With a longer pose one can not only study the figure, but focus on color issues as well. Painting from life rather than a picture can achieve more realistic results. This session is designed for painters, pastel artists, and anyone who desires time for a more in depth study, all mediums are welcome. Models will be nude or costumed. Please note that the models are subject to change without notice.

Registration is $15 per person, per session. $45 for four sessions (buy three get one free), $75 for 8 sessions (buy five get three free) valid for Wednesday and Sunday sessions! Seats are limited, sign up today!

3:00 p.m.- 6:00 p.m.

Kaleeka Bond was born in Virginia and grew up in Southern California.

While having a son in 2013, managing several businesses, and continuing to exhibit her work, Kaleeka and her husband Harith recently launched Adinkra Stitch, an apparel line.

Influenced by behaviors in society and the impingement of mass media, she hopes to counter the effects of these disconnections with social awareness through her artwork. When interviewed about her work. Kaleeka stated; "Art has a way of opening our eyes to things that we refuse to see. I want my work to compel people to see beyond the superficial and seek the profound, ultimately allowing them to live beyond what they think of as the obvious and understand that individualism and the ability to communicate shape the uniqueness of the world."
