We get our models through the Bay Area Models Guild: http://bayareamodelsguild.org/ . Models pose mostly nude, but sometimes with costumes or props. We average about 6 females to 1 male. All different body types and ages.
What: Figure Workshop: We start off with gestures, then two 10 min. poses, then 20 min. poses unless we love it and we have the model do it again. We do gestures and then one long pose on the last Fri. of the month. No instructor. Tables, chairs, drawing boards and table easels are provided. Bring your own standing easel and drawing/painting materials. Only odorless turpenoid please. Soft music played. Refreshments are served.
