What we're about

This is an informal group for all artists and models who enjoy life drawing or want to improve their figure drawing skills. We take turns drawing each other for 15 or 20 minutes.

You can wear your clothes, but many participants don't. No photographs will be allowed and you can say whether you will allow drawings of you to be posted to the Meetup page or to social media.

Some Meetups will take place in a studio in Mountain View, others (modeling in street clothes) will take place in parks or public spaces around the South Bay.

There is no charge, but donations are welcome to help pay for the Meetup website and to buy snacks. There’s no instruction but we can learn from each other by sharing the drawings and conversation.

We are committed to creating a safe and comfortable experience for all our artist/models regardless of gender, age, sexual orientation, physical appearance, ability, etc

Bring your own supplies, there are chairs and drawing tables, but no easels. No experience is necessary and any level of skill is welcome.

Wednesday Evening Figure Drawing on Zoom

Online event

Evening Session on Zoom Let's do another (clothed) meetup on Zoom from home. Sign up the regular way, we are going to roughly gender balance all our events. The Meetup Site will say the event is full because at first only Tori and I will be signed up, but go ahead and sign up, you will be placed on the waitlist, but we will pay attention and move people to “going” as long as we can keep the balance intact. We will message you when you are moved to "Going” and send an invitation to the Zoom session. What to expect: We will take turns posing. Or if a lot of people sign up we will get volunteers to fill the time. If you don’t have a big enough space, we can do portraits. If you don’t have a good enough camera, you can still draw. We will pose for about 2 and a half hours then share our drawings. Culture and Declared Safe Space We are committed to creating a safe and comfortable experience for all our artist/models regardless of gender, age, sexual orientation, physical appearance, ability, etc. Look forward to drawing with you.
