Open Figure Drawing and Photography Session.

Drawing Session Details:

Mondays from 7:30PM to 11PM Apache Cafe provides figure models for artist and photographers to casually drop in and create without a need to pre-register or commit to a multiple week drawing class. Please remember to bring your own supplies!

Flow of the night:

At Apache Cafe a typical figure/life drawing session (class) the attendees sit around a model either in a semicircle or a full circle. No two students have exactly the same view, thus their drawing or photography will reflect the perspective of the artist's unique location relative to the model. The model often poses on a stand, so attendees can more easily find an unobstructed view, depending on the type of pose, furniture and/or props used.

At the beginning of the figure drawing session, the model is often requested to make a series of brief poses in rapid succession. These are called gestures poses, and are typically one to three minutes each. Gesture drawing is a warm-up exercise for many artists, although some artists sketch out the gesture as the first step in every figure drawing.

Since the purpose of figure drawing classes is to learn how to draw humans of all kinds, male and female models of all ages, shapes, and ethnicities are usually sought, rather than selecting only beautiful models or those with "ideal figures". The variety of models hired may be limited by the need for them to hold a pose for extended periods. Scheduled models are usually posted on our FB Calendar events page.
