Service Description

Bring your paints and join us every 1st Saturday of the month for a 3-hour single pose painting session from 10am-1pm! We have a wide range of models who pose for us to keep the subject fresh and inclusive. Models will be clothed in whatever way they choose. We welcome all ages, sizes, and genders. In the past, we've featured people from all walks of life, from college students and grandparents to burlesque dancers in full costume! Each session will consist of a single, three-hour pose (with breaks). The final 5-10 minutes will be used for a gallery walk to view each other's work and share feedback and support. All levels and mediums welcome, no formal training is provided in this session. We also have figure drawing classes on Tuesday nights and Saturday mornings with several poses per session.
