Third Thursdays starting January 17, 2019

Valley Academy for the Arts is starting Funky Figure Drawing in 2019 on the third Thursday of each month. These sessions will be fun, laid back and unlike most other drawing events you have been to before. Our model will be clothed in garish and/or beautiful attire. This attire (along with carefully selected props) is bound to set the mood in the story you are about to create on your media.
This will be a fun, non-instructional session in which poses will generally range from 1 minute to 35 minutes long. Bring pencils, charcoal, paint, a camera, pastels, a hunk of linoleum and a linocutter…. Heck, we’d admire you for strolling in with an Etch-a-Sketch! Just bring whatever you’d like to create with. Enjoy the time spent with your fellow artists, making art and listening to some funky beats!
Sessions will end with at least thirty minutes of socializing, sharing current art opportunities and optional show-off/critique. At VAA, we strive to promote the arts in all types and skill levels, so all adults are welcome!
Cost is $14 per person. In order for you to reserve your spot in this event, you need to register and pay here:
Valley Academy for the Arts is a 501c3 nonprofit. 15% of every Funky Figure Drawing admission goes to providing future scholarships at Valley Academy for the Arts.
