Live Model Figure Drawing
Apr

6:00 PM18:00

Live Model Figure Drawing

This is a traditional figure drawing session with a nude model. Over three hours the model will hold various poses, starting with 1-minute poses for gesture drawings and increasing in length to longer poses for more detailed drawings. 

This is an open format drawing session, meaning there will be no direction. Just an opportunity to practice drawing the figure with a live model. However, if you would like help or tips an experienced artist will be hosting and able to answer questions! 

You don’t have to have drawing experience in order to come! If you have never drawn from a model, I encourage you to come and give it a go!

If you have drawing materials that you prefer, please bring them. Otherwise, newsprint, charcoal, and graphite will be available for use.
