THE FIGURE


OPEN STUDIO : FIGURE DRAWING:  

The Open Studio sessions offered by Saratoga Arts are great practice for any artist interested in working from a live model without the formality of a class. Models are partially clothed or nude.  Open Studio sessions are informal group meetings where artists can talk about their work, share ideas, and discuss a variety of methods and media. There is no teacher for Open Studio. Sessions are recommended for ages 15 and up. (Minors need parental permission) Participants can work in the medium of their choice but must bring their own supplies.
