I was asked recently where to take figure drawing classes. Here are some ideas of how to go about finding at least a group that has a model:
1. Check the local community college for credit & non-credit courses.Â
2. Take an online classÂ
3. Go to the local library and check out DVDs, books, etc. about figure drawings.Â
4. Jerry's Artarama has DVDs
for free short term rentals at the stores.
5. Contact local art communities and/or galleries.
6. The CD to buy with models on it is called Virtual Pose. Use without worrying about copyright.
7. Visit www.wetcanvas.com and check the forums. This is a great source that might help you with your search.
8. Practice gesture drawings, etc. while watching TV, at the mall, park, etc. This happens to be a great conversation starter, too!
