High Tech

At Monday nights figure drawing session one artist brought a digital screen to work on in place of a paper drawing pad. The mimicry of actual paper and pencil amazed the room. But, at least for now, most artists still seem to be committed to working with traditional materials.

Our next session will be Monday, January 8th 2018 at 7:00. Model TBA.

Post Holiday

A good group of artists attended Monday nights figure drawing session. All were treated to excellent poses by our model. Uncharacteristically, a number of participants left early citing a variety of reasons. Could it be fatigue in the wake of the long Thanksgiving weekend?

Our solo December session will be Monday the 11th at 7:00pm. We will host a female model.

Big news! A new daytime figure session has started in Fredericksburg. Figure Drawing at the Backdoor Gallery meets every other Friday. For details contact: Cat Samples at crsamples@hotmail.com

Locked Out

Arriving for Monday night's figure drawing session the model and multiple artists found the door locked. It seems the host had inadvertently locked it and headed upstairs to deal with an emergency circuit breaker issue. With the door unlocked, apologies made and accepted, everyone got down to work. Maybe, just maybe, the drama enlivened the drawings of our excellent model.

Our next session will be Monday, November 27th at 7:00pm. We will host a female model.

Full Circle

Two new artists attended Monday nights session. Our muse for the evening was one of Fredericksburg Figure Drawing's first models. The combination made for a very enjoyable evening of drawing.

Our next session will be Monday, November 13th at 7:00pm. We will host a male model.

Pressure Cooker

Eight hearty artists attended Monday nights figure drawing session. Fall is supposed to have arrived by October but an 85 degree temperature combined with tropical storm Nate's humidity made for a challenging evening. All who sweated it out were treated to some excellent poses from our model.

The next session will be Monday, October 23rd at 7:00. There will be a female model.

Hot Drawing

Move over hot yoga now there is hot figure drawing. A warm evening didn't wilt the spirits of a large group of artists at Fredericksburg Figure Drawing's first session of the season. Making all this possible were the terrific poses of our model Breanne.

Our next session will be Monday, October 9th at 7:00. There will be a male model.
