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.

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. OR you can purchase a pass for $60 for five sessions ($12 a session) valid for Wednesday and Sunday sessions (this is available in-store only)! Limited seats are available, first come first serve.

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.

Please note we do not have a life drawing session on July 9 and July 30.


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!
