Mission Statement

Open Figure Drawing is a community-based drawing group that gives people of all abilities an opportunity to draw from an unclothed model.


    As part of our mission, we strive to provide the following:

  • Offer an inexpensive drawing experience to the general community.
  • Give artists and students access to a live model.
  • Provide drawing opportunities without commitment, on a drop-in basis.
  • Offer a very reliable schedule long term without breaks.
  • Create an environment of artist community support and networking about shows, openings, workshops, grants, and other pertinent events.
  • Organize group shows from among participants.
  • Support and train talented artist models.
  • Expose participants to non-commercial music.
