Painting from the Model – Uninstructed
Come and test your figure drawing or painting skills in this uninstructed Saturday morning session painting directly from a costumed Dottie Stanley Live Art Demoor nude model.  No matter what your level of expertise (or lack of experience) is in the art of figure drawing/painting, Dottie Stanley welcomes you to join us where other professional artists as well as beginners experience the thrill of painting directly from a live person posing for you.

No pictures or photos used- purely painting a three dimensional person!  Many of the professionals in the group will help you with questions or even how to get started.  Our models are professional and they make it easy to paint because they are well trained in posing for artists.saturdayartclass

This is a three-hour session, 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. most Saturdays.  E-mail notices are sent at the beginning of the week to those signed up for this session.  A response is required in order to assure there is room.  No cost to you for painting; however, we do split the model’s fee-among artists there.  Charges could range from $12 to $20, depending upon the number of artists sharing the model’s fee.   Below is an example of a costumed model painted by Dottie Stanley.  Don’t let the elaborate dress scare you.  Many times we paint just the face or a portion of the figure in simple clothes.

Evert Saturday 10am-1pm. Model Fee + Free/M, $5/NM.
