Open Figure Drawing

February 1, 6:30 – 9 PM

Need an opportunity to draw from a live model, but don’t want to commit to a full 6, 8 or 10 week class?

There is no need to pre-register for our Open Figure Drawing class. Come as you can, as often or infrequently as you please, and gain experience drawing from a live, nude model. (Please note that students under the age of 18 must have written permission from a parent or guardian, and that this class provides no instruction, only the opportunity to draw from a model.)

Models vary, and are chosen at the discretion of the instructor moderating the drawing session. The instructors provide students with male and female models of all shapes and sizes, but out of respect for our models’ privacy, we are unable to provide students with the names of the models prior to the start of each session.

$6 per session (Every 5th session is free!)

Exhibition Opening – Megan Marlatt

Megan Marlatt: Substitutions for a Game Never Played

February 1- March 13, 2013
Opening reception: February 1, 2013

Megan Marlatt paints mounds of plastic toys, creating artificial landscapes piled high with subtle references to social/ political issues and pop culture. Her skilled, observational still lives are amassed from objects of childhood play, but their material associations evoke narratives and anxieties regarding consumerism, foreign manufacturing, and environmental waste. Technically masterful, Marlatt’s paintings and drawings are both comic and menacing, allowing the viewer to reminiscence lightheartedly about a particular toy or contemplate the magnitude of our immeasurable reliance on plastic.
