FAQ
-Is photography allowed - I may want to finish drawings at home?

NO PHOTOGRAPHY OF UNDRAPED MODELS ALLOWED IN ANY FORM.

Due to the insertion of cameras into phones and ipads and from there who knows were, we feel we need to make an across the board rule that there is no photography allowed in the figure drawing session. In the past it has been allowed if the model was asked and the photograph process was unobtrusive to the other artists. The intent was that it was for reference to complete the drawing that they were working on. We think it is now too hard to separate it out from inappropriate use.  As a result, we need to keep it simple. No photos and if caught, you are out the door.



-Is paint allowed in figure drawing studio?  YES, but remember there are a lot of other people in the room SO.....

  • Use only odorless solvents in the room. Sometimes your brush cleaning solvents starts out odorless, but as it ages and it is repeatedly used, it gets REAL nasty. If the flies are dropping out of the air, please bring fresh cleaner for class.
  •  Do not use markers or other materials with a strong odor. Relatedly, please refrain from strong perfumes or aftershaves since we are often crowded in an enclosed space.
  • Use fixative and hair sprays when the entire session is over, and then spray outside the room. The strong smell remains on paper and in the air where sprayed.
  • When using dry materials such as charcoal, pastel or conte, do not blow or shake the dust into the air. Work vertically with a collection tray, or carefully take the surface to a trash can or outside to carefully remove the excess dust.

Any other question please see Figure drawing rules
