This group was created as free exchange of modeling and drawing for artists. Artists, who love drawing from life. Group members take turns doing some of the modeling (nude or lightly-clothed, we do allow new members time to get comfortable but we are all about life drawing, which is nude) and will have plenty of time to draw.
I have drawn from life for the last 16 years or so, have taught life drawing, and also have experience modeling for life drawing classes in the University setting. I think the experience of being on both sides of the coin is valuable and interesting.
All body types are welcome. All ages are welcome (over 18).
Currently we meet in Lafayette. Caifornia on Sunday afternoons. We tend to meet every other Sunday.
This is a safe and respectful group. Standard Life drawing etiquette is followed and a must. So it greatly helps if participants have had some experience with drawing models either in a class or an open drawing group. Participants are artists who are willing to also be the models. Diversity is the magic that happens. There is no formal instruction.
