Life Drawing Sessions

Every Wednesday, 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Fee: $10 per night

These sessions are open studio, no instruction is provided.

Each session starts with 15 minutes of one minute gesture drawings, followed by longer poses of 5 to 30 minutes. The first Wednesday of the month will have 10 minutes of one minute gesture drawings followed by one long pose. This will give artists a chance to develop a more finished piece of work and use different media, if desired. The gesture drawings are used as warm-up exercises for both the model and artists. Although charcoal and pencil are the most popular media, artists also use pastels, ink and water media.
