NEW FOR 2022!

First through fourth Thursdays  6:309:00pm  Cost: $12

We encourage everyone to be vaccinated but cannot require it. We want everyone to be safe and healthy.

Figure Drawing Group: We encourage everyone to sign up as far ahead as you can to be sure you get the dates you want as dates to fill up and some may end up on a waiting list. If you know you can’t make a date in advance (or need to switch) or wish to cancel last minute, let Terry know and she can make changes to your registration or make your space available to someone else. Email Terry at:

We recommend advance registration. Sessions are now limited to 7 artists, and masks are optional. In order to run this program, we need a minimum of five registrants signed up by midnight the day before the event or we have to cancel it. Please enroll early! Drop ins are welcome but spots may be filled.

Artists bring their own supplies for a chance to work from a live model. No instruction provided. The $12 fee covers the cost of the model and helps support the NAA. Artists under the age of 18 may attend our Figure Drawing program with prior permission of the Program Coordinator and a permission slip from their parent or guardian. There will be short to long poses on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays and “Mixed” options on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays

Program coordinator: Michele Tilford and Mary Anderson
