The Figure Drawing club offers artists a casual environment to hone their craft, observational skills and ability to execute a drawing with a LIVE figure model. Artists may choose to practice gesture, contour lines, line quality and weight, negative and positive space, and rendering shapes and measuring proportions.

This is a two-hour figure drawing class in which a professional model will be provided. Please note that there is no instructor but staff will be present to assist participants and visitors.

We will practice with a series of ten 5-+minute poses and two 25-minute poses.
