Re: “Free Figure-Drawing Classes

I love this! I'm not able to come often enough due to other educational commitments, but they are the best. Free, but donation (tip) for the model is appreciated.

Andy or Eric take turns monitoring class and timing posing. They are each fabulous instructors (and have impressive portfolios!) No critique, but feel free to share work or ask questions of fellow students or instructors. This class is ideal for a beginner who is shy, or the advanced student who just needs a stress free class. This class is perfect!

Class follows the semester, so is out for the holidays and summer. No actual instruction, but don't underestimate the work involved! 2 solid hours of drawing with only a short (usually 5 minute) break in between. Typical short to long pose class. A sample class might start with 1 minute poses followed by 5 minute, a couple of ten, then a break, then end with two twenty minute poses. It varies slightly each week.

Bring your own art supplies. I have heard the instructors say that any medium is welcome, but there is not enough time for anything but dry medai and I would recommend charcoal/ compressed charcoal/ conte/ or a soft graphite. Pastels may work if you are quick and know what you are doing, I saw one accomplished artist do well with them. Easels and/or a horse is provided. Bring an artist' clip board or have a sturdy drawing pad if you're working small. I have seen people come in using notebooks and pencils... It's not ideal, but seriously, just come with the mindset to work, watch other people, ask questions, and buy what you need. Every artist tends to have a favorite. Mine is compressed charcoal. I hate newsprint, but use the stuff because it is cheap. I like a paper with some tooth for longer poses.

Oh yes, the class is typically a bit warmer so the model does not have to suffer. You should dress in a way that is layered so you can remove an uncomfortable shirt if you get too stuffy. Think ahead according to your body type. Also think of model ettiquette. You must not have your cell phone with camera out suring the poses, this is just creepy and a violation of privacy. If you have to text, do it after, if you have to take a call, do it outside. Don't be a creep. The models are all great, and it is hard word to maintain a pose (even to shorter ones!) so be respectful and grateful for them.

There are snack machines in the lobby, and drink machines. Bathrooms. I don't know what else... They keep the place locked down do don't wander out in the parking lot to smoke during break or you will be locked out ( at least for a few minutes!)

Thank you SUVA!

Re: “Center for Creative Photography

With an unparalleled archive, the CCP could have blockbuster shows one after another if they wished. As the current Wynn Bullock show indicates, the CCP partners with other illustrious archives and museums to dazzle one's senses.
