Visual Arts Brampton is the only area art group that offers year-round life drawing sessions. We provide artists the opportunity to draw from a life model who will strike dynamic poses. Models vary in age, gender, shape and size, giving artists new challenges and experience from week to week. We do not offer instruction during these sessions.
Each session begins with ten 2 minute warm-up gestures followed by three 10 minute poses. After a short break, we end the evening with either three 20 minute poses or two 30 minute poses.
Weekly Session Time: Tuesday 7:00pm - 9:30pm
Price: $15 per session, $10 with membership
Skill Level: Artists of all skill levels are welcome
