Easel Close Up

Open Life Drawing and Painting

These sessions provide an opportunity to work in a studio environment from a live model in the artists preferred medium. Artist Jessie Nickerson will structure and time the model as well as be available for some basic instruction and coaching (optional for those who would like it).

The sessions begin with about 25 minutes of warm up gesture poses and increase in time toward longer studies. Easels are provided and supplies for warm up gestures are available (charcoal and newsprint). Bring your own materials for longer poses.

Our classes and workshops are open to students of all abilities and needs. We are currently unable to provide one-on-one instruction, though we will make every attempt to address accommodations for full and successful engagement whenever possible.
If a student requires individual supports, parent/guardian/PCA/teacher/ABA Therapists/etc are welcome to attend.
