We had the opportunity to draw one of our favorite models last night and welcomed some new artists for the session. It was a great evening, that always seems to go by too quickly. I'll keep everyone posted for next Wednesday's session, June 2, so check back often!

Artists, I've posted all of the images that were on the camera. If yours is missing, please send me a jpeg of your drawing. I want to make sure I include everyone who wants to show off their work from Wednesday night!

We look forward to welcoming a new model on June 2, who will pose unclothed.

Art First Gallery had a nice turnout for the first Uninstructed Figure Drawing Session and we had a GREAT model. We warmed up with five 3 minute poses, five 5 minute poses, then a 10, 20 and a 60 minute pose with a break (for cookies and a chance to talk to other artists) in between. It was a great evening and we want to thank all of the artists who came out to draw with us!

Our model for next Wednesday, May 12th,, will be Andre, who will pose unclothed. There will be no Figure Drawing Session on the 19th.

Remember, arrive early because we lock the doors at 7:00. We recommend around 6:45 to give yourself plenty of time to get set up. Bring your own drawing supplies and boards or easels, no wet media, no aerosols, please. Chairs are limited ... first come, first served!
