What we're about

Meetup for figure drawing or painting in a few formats: Quick sketch with the nude model, longer sustained poses with the nude model and clothed portrait sessions. We will post how you can be involved in each session. Because it is a school, there are some classes mixed into the announcements but most events are for people who want to do their own work!

There is free parking, handicap access and a coffee machine. We are using warm single form lighting on the model. There are about 12 easels and tray tables set up with the possibility of about 6 additional ones. My goal is to create a nice day and time where people know they can come to for great models and great company.

We are located at Bucks County Classical Arts Center, Room 205 of St Martin of Tours Church, 1 Riverstone Circle, New Hope, PA 18938.

For more about classes, information about art and more go to https://classes.murdochart.com/ . The Center is run by John Murdoch who is committed to empowering artists to make the best work they can.
