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, etc.

This club is a non-instructional gathering of artists who work independently while sharing the cost of a model.

RESPECT:

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.

WHEN?

Life Drawing takes place on the 2nd and 4th Monday of the Month, 11am to 1pm.

COST?

The cost of the model is $80, which is divided up between each artist, plus a $3 space fee for each participant. Our goal is to have 8 to 12 artists participate in each meeting, making the cost vary and affordable.

REGISTRATION?

Pre-Registration is required as seats are limited. To ensure your seat an $11 deposit can be placed using Venmo @ Gretchen-Grunt-Creative-Center (760-361-3461). Please include which date this deposit is for :)
