      Life Drawing at Del Ray Artisans Gallery - 2020 Schedule

      Looking for a chance to hone your figure drawing skills? Del Ray Artisans offers a range of open life drawing sessions for just this purpose. Both nude and clothed models are featured. These sessions operate on a drop-in basis so there is no need to register in advance. Bring your supplies and join us at the gallery to draw or paint from our live models. We don’t supply easels but you are welcome to bring your own if you want to use one. Please no acrylics or oils. Pastels, watercolor and ink are permissible. All skill levels are welcome.

      The fee for each three-hour session is $10 for Del Ray Artisans members and $12 for non-members. Two-hour Gesture sessions are $8 for members and $10 for non-members. View the “Life Drawing” category in the online calendar at for the most current schedule.
