About Drop In Drawing Sessions:

We welcome all skill levels, including those who have never drawn before and want to try drawing. Art supplies and clipboards will be available for you to use, and your artwork will be yours to take home or exchange with others. Models representing the diversity of the Bay Area will be posing in the galleries for times ranging from 2 to 20 minutes. Since we will be drawing in galleries, please be mindful of the space and bring only the following media from home: sketchbooks (max size 9×12 inches), pre-sharpened enclosed graphite or charcoal pencils.

*Please note that some models may be nude while others may be partially clothed.

Drop in Drawing Sessions will be held during the following times:

5:30—6:15 pm
5:45—6:30 pm
6:45— 7:30 pm
7:00—7:45 pm
