Welcome to Skin & Bone Studio (S&B Studio) for Live Figure and Bone Anatomy Studies, a workshop offering beginners to well-seasoned artists an opportunity to strengthen and explore figure drawing.

For more than 2000 years, the arts of the West have idealized the human body as the most beautiful and expressive form in space. Join us at the easel to observe, interpret, and portray the human body in repose and action. Enjoy standing and seating opportunities at the easel, where you will have access to live nude and partially nude figure poses. You can also portray bone anatomy by observing our medical-grade life-size human skeleton, as well as smaller animal carvings.

Who: Adults 18 and over, total beginners to experienced artists

Please note that the modeling and posing remains the same for all learning experiences, and as scheduled for any given Thursday; what changes is your approach at the easel, with or without instruction.
