Friday Morning Model Sessions

Fridays 9am-12

$10 per day.

This is a deal you can't find anywhere else.

ZAFA hosts open figure drawing and painting sessions. The goal of these sessions is to give artist time working from live models. These poses are longer than most model sessions held on the islands. Each pose is carried over for 2 to 5 consecutive weeks. This gives artist the opportunity to make more in-depth studies of the figure. In addition the the extra time on these poses, models are also arranged in a staged environment. This gives artist the option to create scenes and practice painting figures in a context rather than just being limited to quick sketches. Often times artist complete finished oil paintings over the course pose. 

Because the pose carries over, participants have the option to reserve a spot from week to week to insure that they can continue the drawing or painting they were working on the week prior. 

People are invited to drop by and sketch for a day or reserve an easel and continue their painting the following week. 

Easels, drawing boards, and a space to store their work from week to week are provide. Artists are responsible for bringing their own drawing and painting materials each week. All drawing and painting media are welcome. Artist have brought watercolors, oil paints, acrylic, ink, and even worked on their computers using Wacom tablets. Artist are alway also welcome to just drop by for a day and sketch.
