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 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. Cancellations made the day of the session cannot be refunded. Email Terry at:

Sessions are limited to 8 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. Presign-up is strongly encouraged.

Artists bring their own supplies for a chance to work from a live model. No instruction provided. The $14 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.

Program coordinator: Michele Tilford
