What we're about

In person sessions are returning in July 2021 for a three week run to test the viability of returning to semi-normal drawing. Everyone, models and artist MUST be vaccinated. Once here, masks are optional, but preferred, if just for the time being and based mostly on the models requests. Thank you for your cooperation in helping us all to stay safe!

The sessions will go into another period of hibernation through August and September of 2021 but well return in October and November. We look forward to seeing you then!

Tuesday Evenings, 7:00 - 10:00pm. We love drawing and we love listening to music while we draw! We are a loose collection of professionals and amateurs who have been meeting every Tuesday to draw the figure since 1996. Comfort and good humor are important aspects of our group and we enjoy talking about important - or not important - issues of the day. This is not a quiet or hushed group! But no question, our dedication and devotion is to our love of drawing the figure. We work with a spectacular collection of Models, many of whom work with the local BAMG and Art Schools. All media welcome. Poses progress from short gestures, 1 or 2 minutes, up to 20 minutes. New artists are always welcome. Drop in fee of $12.00, or pay a $40.00 monthly fee.

There is absolutely NO photography allowed, so don't even ask! In this smart phone era this is a big problem. The bond of trust and respect between our Artists and Models is of the utmost importance to all of us and is essential to the vital creative collaboration that happens between Artists and Models. Please respect our Models and refrain from the use of your devices during poses (Drawing on your iPad/Surface is ok, but please disable your device camera.)

The BAMG is working vigorously to ensure we keep our artists happy and providing our beloved, hardworking models a platform to do what they do best on. We’re aiming to have a recurring Thursday night, livestream drawing session starting from 6pm-8pm. We will start with Zoom for ease.

There will be different models each week to provide the inspiration necessary to make it through these unprecedented but hopeful times.

We ask that participants continue to hold themselves to the professional, and respectful standards which have defined Guild clients for decades.

PLEASE NO SCREENSHOTS OR SCREENRECORDING, we want to protect the privacy and comfort of our models as we adapt to the new online medium.
