Friday ARTnights: Working from the Figure

Working from nude models, this is an adults-only, uninstructed, monitored, 3-hour walk-in, drawing session. It is highly suggested that those who attend have at least some basic or prior drawing experience from the life model. The model usually poses for an extended period in the same pose so that an artist can render a completed piece and at times we will extend a particularly good pose for multiple sessions. You are free to paint or draw in a medium of your choice. The event is inclusive and welcomes both beginners and practicing, professional artists. Expect a warm, supportive, and engaging atmosphere to further develop your figure drawing skills. Participants are encouraged to help each other and advise, as well as bring snacks or refreshments to share. Easels, tray tables, and drawing boards are available on a first-come, first-served basis. $15 class drop-in. Call (202) 547-6839 for more information. Upcoming Dates: 1/15/16, 2/5, 2/19, 3/11, 3/18, 4/1, 4/15, 5/6, 5/20, 6/3, 6/17, 7/1, 7/15

This retelling of the classical Greek myth explores the failure of society to live up to the promise of its visionaries, and the tragic repercussions of that failure. On the anniversary of his queen's death, King Thetis intends to wed the beautiful commoner, Clymene, and to usher in an era of peace after an age of vicious war.
