What we're about

What is lifedrawing? Drawing the human figure sharpens artistic skill. Many artists consider this study to be the best way to learn how to draw. We have people of all ranges in experience, from the complete beginner to the very experienced. Bring your own art supplies; AVAA provides easels and artist benches.

The studios posted as Meetups meet at the Austin Visual Arts Association, 3707 Home Lane, off 38th Street, between Speedway and Guadalupe. Be aware, the front door does not face Home Lane, it actually faces 38th.

Model fee At AVAA is $8.00. CASH only, no checks, and you must be 18 or over.

OTHER VENUES — Be aware of schedule changes due to the virus. Also, some offer The Figure, some not.

ACC offers life drawing classes for college credit. So do St. Ed's & UT. Concordia offers drawing classes, but I do not believe they have lifedrawing. UT now only allows its art majors to take studio classes. And, good luck getting into the program!

In Bastrop, check out The Lost Pines Art Center: https://www.lostpinesartcenter.org

In San Marcos, you could contact the San Marcos Art League for info about opportunities there: https://artleaguesmtx.org (https://artleaguesmtx.org/)
