Drawing From Life in Our Open Studio Sessions

Have you heard about our Open-Life Drawing Sessions? Our monitored open studios are a way for artists of all levels to work from a model, using their own media, in a quiet, focused environment. (For an idea of what a typical open studio is like, read our blog post, “A Visit to the Open-Life Class.”)

Five-week sessions are held twice a term on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, for a tuition of only $65, or $55 for the shorter Friday session. Students are free to work on what they like during the poses — Wednesday’s open studio is for long poses, while the others are shorter.

The next three sessions this summer start Monday, July 29, Wednesday, July 31, and Friday, August 2. Current Art League students, members, and benefactors may also drop in for a $20 fee. (Sessions require a set enrollment, so registration is encouraged over dropping in.) Click here for the full schedule of open-life drawing sessions.
