Figure drawing downtown

This summer I’m teaching “Figure Drawing and Painting in Downtown Iowa City,” organized by the Artifactory, and we took to the streets for our first session on June 11. You can drop in for any or all of the remaining sessions if you’d like to “venture out into the cool summer mornings, capturing the sunlight casting over the figure to show facial form and folds on clothing.”

The cost is $25.00/person per session; bring your own supplies (including a folding chair, and sketchbook and drawing/painting materials you enjoy).

Upcoming dates are Monday mornings, 10 a.m.–noon on:

  • June 25,
  • July 16 and 30, and
  • August 6 and 20, 2018

We’ll meet at The Center, Room 211 (28 S Linn St, Iowa City) to start. See also the Classes and Events page for details!
