Life Drawing Club
Life Drawing Club is for Adults who find inspiration in working with a live model to create drawings, paintings, collages, sculptures in clay, mixed media...
Our club meetings are non-instructional gathering of artists who work independently while sharing ideas and the cost of a model in a working art studio.
Artists are asked to avoid conversation during drawing times, and remain focused on the model in a respectful manner. No solvents (toxic fumes) are allowed but multi-media non-toxic mediums are encouraged.
Life Drawing takes place on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the Month from 11am to 1pm.
The cost of the model is $80 per 2-hour session, which is divided between each artist, plus, a $3 location fee. We'll have a minimum of 4 to a maximum of 8 artists, making the cost vary from $23 to $13 per session.
Pre-Registration is required as seats are limited. A $13 deposit is collected at booking, and any remaining balance will be paid in cash, check or Venmo the day of the session.
