Figure Drawing Co-op
UPDATE 9/22/13: The co-op has begun and will run every Thursday this semester except 10/24 and 11/28. Also, please note that the former coordinator (Taylor Champoux) is a recent graduate and is no longer responsible for managing the co-op; the new facilitators are listed, and please send any inquiries to [email protected] Thank you!
The Figure Drawing Co-op is located in the temporary Drawing studio (Old Main 4th Floor) and runs during the academic year. The fourth floor IS wheelchair accessible, there is an elevator on the main floor that you can take to the top. This Fall semester 2013, meetings are from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm every Thursday, beginning Sept 5th and going until Dec 5th. **SEE BELOW FOR EXCEPTIONS TO CO-OP DATES, THERE ARE TWO** Sessions are open to both Macalester students and the general public. Each session has a model scheduled and the poses generally range from 2 minute warm up poses to several longer (15-45 minute) poses towards the end. There is no fee, but please bring your own art supplies. There are drawing boards and easels available in the studio.
Please respect the space by picking up after yourself. Additionally, we still welcome those who cannot make it at exactly 7 pm - come at 8 during the break (10 minutes long). Thank you for your interest, and we hope you stop by sometime!
Membership via Exco is recommended but not required - you may show up at will, and do not need to attend every session. It is more of a "come when you want" type of event. However, this could change if we get more attendees than in the past as space in the studio is limited to about 20 people.
Campus map for reference, Old Main is a reddish-colored, old-looking building and is number 22 on the map. http://www.macalester.edu/about/maps/
