This is the meetup group associated with the Boston Figurative Art Center, headquartered at the Vernon Street Studios in Somerville. You can join this meetup group online for free, and get information about what we're doing, and when. There is a fee for drawing and painting with us, and you can become a member of the BFAC by paying per month, which entitles you to lower cost drawing and painting sessions and events.

We are a group dedicated to promoting figurative art in the Boston Area, and to providing a community where figurative artists can meet, talk, and work together. We would like to help create a context for figure artists that we feel is lacking in the area, and by coming together foster a more visible figurative art presence in Boston.

Please visit our website at bostonfigurecenter.org for more information.
