Open Studio


Our regular 9:30-12:30 sessions are "Open Studio." Live models pose for portrait and figure (life drawing) while artists sketch or paint using a wide variety of mediums. These sessions are ideal for developing drawing skills, learning and honing techniques, and promoting the ability to finish a piece in a limited period of time.

Non-member artists are welcome at a guest rate (see below). All skill levels are accepted – we invite you to enjoy one free session visit.
