Thursday Night Figure Drawing Sessions at Shelf Life Art & Supply Co.
Weekly Figure Drawing Sessions are held Thursday evenings from 6.30-8.30p at Shelf Life Art & Supply Co. in Greensboro, NC.
This group is intended for adults ranging from college students to established artists as a studious but informal platform for drawing practice & being in community with other Triad artists. There is no instruction, but during breaks, artists are encouraged to share with each other.
Student (18+) with valid Student ID: $7/session
Adult (Non-Student): $12/session
Each session you attend entitles you to one punch on your punch card. After you attend 5 sessions, you will receive a free drawing session, which you may use for yourself, or use to bring a friend to join us!
What to Bring
We have many chairs! You will need to bring what you want to draw with (e.g. graphite, charcoal, pens, markers, watercolor, etc.) and on (e.g. sketchbook, drawing pad, tote board, portable easel).
Some folks opt to sit on the floor. If it would be more comfortable, feel free to bring a cushion, a fold-out bleacher seat (or, if you were a Girl Scout like me, a "Sit-Upon") if you are a floor-sitter.
We typically start with a series of short poses and move into a series of progressively longer poses, starting with 30 second gestures, and ending with a 40 minute long pose.
We encourage you to take photographs of your work, and to share your drawings to social media using the hashtags #drawgso and #shelflifeart. We ask that you please refrain from photographing the actual model.
The door will be locked at 6.30p, so that we can start on time. If you arrive late, there will be a note posted on the door with a number to call or text for entry. If there is no note posted, we have reached capacity, and are not taking late admittance. Please plan to arrive before 6.30p for best results.
Our neighbors at Dove Medical have installed "No Parking/Towing" signs in eight spaces next to our store. We have been informed that this is only enforced during business hours for Dove Medical. Therefore, I encourage you to use these spaces when you arrive, as they are likely to be left open from the day.
