This session’s focus topic is drapery on the body. Challenge yourself in drawing the motion of the cloth, sheet, or blanket to the movement and flow of the body.

Please note that these sessions are not instructed. However, you have the option to join a small group critique that will take place in the last half hour or after the drawing session.

These sessions are for those who wish to develop skills working with a live model. During these non-instructional sessions, participants will work at their own pace, in their chosen medium. Sessions will begin with short warm-up poses and eventually build up to longer traditional poses. Painting and sculpting are encouraged but no turpentine or other strong-smelling solvents are allowed. Participants should be over sixteen years old and are asked to arrive on time to ensure the privacy of the model.
