The Life Drawing series is an independent figure drawing class that allows students to work from a nude model in your choice of mediums. While skill level is varied, there is no immediate instruction allowing each student to practice their drawing skills at their own pace. The Life Drawing series at Hillyer Art Space is the perfect opportunity to practice your skills and independently work with access to a live model.
While easels, chairs and artistic ambiance are provided by Hillyer, artists are required to bring their own drawing materials. Space will be limited to 30 attendees. Walk-ins are welcome to join if there are seats available.
Interested in modeling? Contact Paul Pietsch at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are grateful to Paul for his volunteer support of our life drawing series.
