Come join our group for informal sessions offering the opportunity to draw from a live model!



Everyone is very welcome, from complete beginners to professional artists. Our sessions are laid-back, without a teacher to tell you what you are doing "right" or "wrong". You aren't expected to show your drawings to anyone unless you want to, so please don't be put off even if you don't have much experience.

We have a great mix of people, from those who are simply trying to work extra time for creativity into their lives, to professional artists looking to sharpen their life drawing skills.

Please notice the numerous Assistant Organizers we have! This is because this is a group run collaboratively by the group. Any member can set up a session for the group at any time. The only required criteria for sessions we have is:

  • Experienced figure model(s) ages 18+
  • All attendees contribute toward model fees
  • Classical poses, no overtly sexual poses please
  • Drawing and painting materials only, no photography please
  • A professional, safe and respectful work environment for the models and fellow artists
  • Bring your own supplies and materials
  • Enjoy!

Our goal is to have both regularly scheduled and impromptu sessions as frequently as possible so we have a variety of times and locations to choose from. So if you know of a space that's available, post a notice!

Models, please join and introduce yourself by posting a note in the message board so we can easily reach you and see if your schedule fits our session time.

All artists are encouraged to post their artwork and self-promotional info in the message board.

See you at the drawing board!


Cheers, John

I''ve been modeling for drawing sessions for the last 2 years. If you need someone, I'm interested. I would prefer to be paid around 10$ an hour, if thats at all possible:)

Lizzarina, Our group is just getting started & we haven't established a procedure for selecting our models, the rate we can afford to pay, etc. Please join our group & post a message in the message board about yourself so the group can see.
