Open Figure Drawing and Painting Studios
Thursdays 9am - noon
Saturdays 9am - noon
(No Saturday sessions in July or August)
Open Figure Drawing and Painting Studios offer an opportunity for artists to hone their craft while joining a community of artists pursuing a shared passion. Open to artists of all skill levels and media, it is an inclusive and dynamic environment that encourages rigorous study, playful experimentation, and a cross-pollination of ideas.
Participants may chose to take the open studios either independently or with guidance. Guided open studios include thorough critiques during the sessions, as well as periodical critiques/conversations looking at a students larger body of work and addressing areas of strength, areas for improvement, goals, and suggested exercises to achieve those goals.
Each session will consist of a single pose lasting the entire duration, with breaks every 25 minutes and a longer break halfway through. Drawing boards, easels, and horses are provided. Odorless mineral spirits only. Gamsol is preferred. Cubbies, flat file space, and storage racks for wet canvases are also available. Participants may drop in for $20/session (uninstructed), or choose from one of the options below.
This is an option for folks who need a more flexible option than monthly memberships, but would still like to get the bulk discounts on studio time.
The punchcards can be picked up after purchase the first time you go in for a studio session.
Punchcards expire one year after purchase.
