OPEN STUDIO Sessions


Non-Instructive
Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday* Mornings
9:30am to 12:30pm

All sessions are free to art students

Our three regular sessions are "Open Studio Sessions" meaning non-instructive events where Artists pool their monies to bring in models for sketching and painting for either life drawing, portrait or figure sessions. Artists use a wide variety of media and often with different focuses ranging from exploring new techniques to learning the basics. These sessions are excellent to develop drawing skills, the ability to see values, pace oneself to attempt to finish in a limited period, and gain exposure to others' techniques and materials. All theories and skill levels are accepted.

Non-member artists are welcome as guest participants during these sessions. If you would like to model for a fee, be sure to see this post.
