Figure Drawing Class

Nine Eighteen Nine Studio Gallery will be hosting figure drawing atThe VAPA Center every Tuesday night. Starting April 5th till the end of May.

Unorthodox Studios will be facilitating the event, professionalism welcomed silliness required. We do ask that you sign up in advance, it is not mandatory just preferred.

Things are little different this time around. We will have 2 models posing in separate rooms. The host is still able to have all eyes on the artists and models. Artists pay $5 per 20 min they wish to sign up. This makes it more flexible for the artists to pick exactly what poses they want and for how long. The posters are either 3x 20 min equaling in an hour, or a series of gestures ranging from 1 min to 5 min.
