Open Studio Life Drawing Sessions also continue each week. Featuring live model figure drawing, artists gather together to paint, sketch or sculpt from different live models. The models will provide a long pose, which will give participants time to complete their work.

Teen Night Mondays welcomes all young artists every Monday from 6-8 p.m. Adults meet on Tuesday and Wednesdays, 6-8 p.m.

The fee to participate is $6.50 for Teens and $12.50 for Adults. Participants can also pre-register for five sessions for a fee of $60.
