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.

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.

Closing Night

A rainy April evening didn't prevent a large number of artists from attending the final session before summer break. Beautiful and inventive poses by Richmond based model Breanne made for some terrific drawings.

Fredericksburg Figure Drawing will start it's eighth year in the fall. Founded and then nurtured through the first five years by Susan Ishii the group has gone through multiple challenges and changes. Ultimately, it is the combined enthusiasm and efforts of dedicated artists and models that keep figure drawing flourishing in Fredericksburg. 

Wishing everyone a good summer. See you in September!

Baring it All

Monday night an attentive group of artists was treated to more than just the exceptional modeling talents of Lise Bruneau. She also shared her music library via her iPhone. The debate was which is more revealing - baring your body or your musical tastes?

Monday, April 10th we will host a male model at 7:00pm.
