We're new here!Join us!
Drawing the human figure accurately is one of the great challenges in art, and this group is to allow local artists and hobbyists a chance to practice in the Coachella Valley.
We will involve rapid poses to loosen up, shorter poses, medium poses, and a final long pose. We hope to meet once a week.
There will be no formal teaching, but those new to figure drawing are welcome to come. In my experience, more advanced artists are happy to give advice and input while the model is on break.
This group is brand new, and our goal is to find a location, hire models, and get drawing! We will be contacting College of the Desert to see if a room with horses, stools and easels is available. If you are connected with an organization that can provide such a space, please let us know! There will be a small fee, depending on the number of participants, to pay the model for each session.
Before everything is set up, we may stage informal gatherings where we model (clothed!) for each other. We are also seeking a venue for this (any room, really).
