What we're about

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 for over 24 years. 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.)

Online Figure Drawing with Titania

Online event

(This is not hosted by me, but rather by our illustrious model, Titania, herself!) (She says)Hello Artists! Join me online ~ this Saturday and every Saturday ~ for a gesture filled figure drawing session live on Zoom from 11am-2pm PST// 2pm-5pm EST// 7pm-10pm BST! From 3pm-4pm PST, there will be a one-hour long pose! For our 3-hour drawing session, I'll be your model lightly clothed in 2 piece swimsuit, bra and panties or a leotard while performing dynamic poses from my home into yours! We'll start with 1-2 minute quick gesture poses then one on to 3-5 minute poses, 7-10 minute poses and end with one or two 20 minute poses. At 2pm, we'll take a one hour break before returning at 3pm for a one-hour long pose. Painters, watercolorists, sculptors - get ready ! ~ ~ ~ ~ $10-$20 sliding scale prepay // prepay to receive the Zoom link *no one turned away for lack of funds so please email me if you would like to draw me * :) You can prepay by PayPal'ing me at paypal.me/titaniaartmodel Or prepay through Eventbrite: Click the link and pick the date. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/online-figure-drawing-sessions-long-pose-with-model-titania-tickets-102761039034 Once paid, I will send you the Zoom link to join the session before the session begins. (Please don't share the link since this is how I will be paid for posing :) Ticket sales end 30 minutes before the session begins. Once paid, I will send you the Zoom link before the session begins. ~ ~ ~ LOCATION: Zoom. You will need to download Zoom from zoom.us onto your computer, iPad, iPhone or other electronic device to join this session. It's free to download! WHAT TO EXPECT: You can go on Zoom a few minutes before 11am to wait for me to welcome you in. It's best to view it full screen. Put a table or easel 3-4 ft away from your computer screen. The resolution is not like a movie theater, but once you start to draw, you will see enough detail to keep busy. My goal while I'm virtually posing for you all is to create a fun light-hearted space where we both feel comfortable making art together. I will be playing music during the session. Feel free to mute me and enjoy my poses in silence or with your own playlist going if you like. Each week my music playilst will be different and might include: Alice Coltrane, John Coltrane, ESG, Beautiful Chorus, and a variety of funk. My setup will also change each week and will be shared a few days prior to the session on my Instagram page to allow for edits. Hope you can make it! ~ ~ Please email me if you have any questions: [masked] ~ Thank you so much and I hope you all are doing well out there! Best wishes, Titania WHY ONLINE: Normally this groups meets the first Saturday of every month at RBA Creative in Oakland. During this lockdown, I will be livestreaming my modeling sessions to sustain myself, maintain a connection with my art community, and continue my art practice. Thank you so much for your support!
