Description:
Are you new to drawing and looking for a supportive, professional environment for your studies? Perhaps you are an experienced artist searching for a dedicated, creative community and energizing dialogue?

Each Sunday, artists are invited to bring their work—whether it be for a school assignment or personal practice—into our main studio, to become a part of an inspiring network of makers. With the help of our moderators, participants will have full access to nearly 1600 square feet of studio space, our studio equipment, and a collection of more than thirty classical casts (the only regional collection open to the public for the specific purpose of drawing). This opportunity is not to be missed!

Cast drawing provides the opportunity for artists to practice a variety of fundamental drawing skills while also allowing for the study of classical proportions and historical works. With the help of a moderator, casts will be set up and lit early during the sessions.

Our drawing horses and easels are available on a first-come first served basis, and supplementary seating—including chairs, stools, and cushions—are also available.

As this is an independent study opportunity, participants must provide their own supplies.  And participants must register for this FREE offering.

Casts available for drawing include:

Life-sized Houdon L’Ecorche

La Belle Italienne Mask

Full bust of Julius Caesar

Full bust of Lemnian Athena

Full bust of Hermes

Full bust of Classical Female

Full bust of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Full bust of Poseidon

Full bust of Apollo Belvedere

Full size Venus torso

Classical Nike relief sculpture

Numerous (anatomical) Hands and Feet

And more...
