First through fourth Thursdays  6:309:00pm  Cost: $16 for nonmembers, $14 for members 

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 Cathy 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 Cathy at:  If you arrive to a session without pre-registering, you may not be given a spot as we often reach capacity and cannot fit more. Enrolling online in advance is your best chance of securing a space.

Presign-up is strongly encouraged.

Artists bring their own supplies for a chance to work from a live model. No instruction provided. The $16 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
