Open Studio Figure Drawing: Autumn Session 2 (4 weeks)

Life Drawing In ProgressCome join us for figure drawing in a friendly, non-competitive space. This is a 4 week non-instructional program designed to practice your figure drawing skills. Sessions are limited to 10 participants, creating an intimate and rewarding experience for artists and model/performers alike. Our artist host will facilitate each session and be availab-le for additional support to beginners. We alternate between male and female professional models who will pose unclothed and costumed, aiming for a diversity in age and body shapes. Subjects are on a raised model stand with proper spotlighting to create three-dimensionality. Drawing horses, easels, drawing boards are available. This group is for both amateur and experienced artists and we welcome all skill levels.
A variety of drawing materials will be available for use – so experiment with something new! Additional materials are also available for purchase from our shop.

Registration required for 4-week sessions at a cost of $75 + HST.  Drop-in possible if space is available for $25 including HST – please contact us before attending.

Tea and snacks included.

Each 3 hour session will include a 15-20 minute warm up, a 15 min break at the half way point & optional group conversational critique at the end of the session.
