Please come 15 minutes before. All levels welcome! Every week a group of locals get together to draw and/or paint the human figure to hone their art practice. Although many of the artists who come to this session have been drawing a while, we will provide tips, tricks, and techniques to assist you along the way as well as exercises that will be fun and engaging. Once you have warmed up a little, we can provide a demo to give you even more insight. We start each session with quick drawing poses designed to get into the groove and loosen up. On Thursday nights we continue these short poses while lengthening the amount of time so you have more time to work on each pose as the session continues. On Sundays we will do 1 long pose designed for you to walk away with a detailed finish drawing.

I am founder of Channel To Channel, a contemporary art gallery in Nashville, TN. I started these figure drawing sessions as part of our programming in 2015. Ever since then I have seen enormous growth from the artists that regularly attend our sessions. I love providing an outlet for the visual art community as well as visitors from out of town.

We are located inside The Packing Plant which houses 5 other contemporary art galleries. Our shows rotate once every 2 months so there is always new art to be seen from regional contemporary artists.
This is a fun, educational experience. Learning how to draw a person takes a lot of time and dedication, but we hope to provide some insight into this world of figure-drawing.
