Open Studio Figure drawing, Your fees pay the model

No instructor, pay the model directly. Schedule TBD by group. Artists meet once a week to draw from a live model to study the human form. The human body is the most complex of creations with endless possibilities for improvement. Figure drawing is not something to be ‘learned’ once and then discarded. This class forces you to see the relationships, measurements, and proportions of the human body.
