Working from life offers great benefits:

  • learning to find and edit your position,
  • finding a composition,
  • developing sensibilities to take three-dimensional form and apply it to a two-dimensional picture plane,
  • avoiding distortion from our cameras and printing devices
  • seeing the true nature of values and color.

Our models pose on an elevated stage for greater visibility. We offer a variety of professional direct lighting for dramatic chiaroscuro effects. You are welcome to use our easels, tables, and chairs to work from. Bring your art supplies for either drawing or painting and share some quiet space creating art.

Sunday Critique
For those of us who want to take a critical look at our drawings and how we can improve, sign up for an hour critique to help you set your intention for the following hour’s life drawing session. Denise Wada will offer constructive advice on what you could do to improve your practice whether it is form, values, gesture, or line work; we all have the capacity to improve.
