Weekly & Monthly Art Groups

Click Here for a Printable Group Flyer

The weekly drawing groups are considered open studio time. They are very casual. There is no formal instruction, but you may get many ideas and suggestions from the coordinators and students. A model is provided so we charge $6 for non-members and $5 for members and students. Bring your own materials but we do have a few tables, easels, and benches that can be used.

The weekly painting groups are also considered open studio. There is no model, however we ask for non-members to donate $6 to help us keep the lights on. These groups have been meeting for many years. The attendees come and go for these sessions.

Students 15 or older are encouraged to attend Tuesday and Thursday life drawing and painting group sessions. Area high school students may be eligible for extra credit when attending the Tuesday Night Sketch Group. Contact the group coordinators for more information.

The monthly groups are free and usually focus on certain content. See our online schedule for specific subjects, times, and dates.
