Figure Drawing Co-op

ArtAlliance's picture

UPDATE 2/23/2014: The co-op will run every Thursday this semester starting on 2/27/2014 except for 3/20/2014. Also, please note that the former coordinators (Sarah Olander and Marlys Mandaville) are studying abroad this semester and are not currently 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 advanced drawing studio (A206) on the second floor of the new art building and runs during the academic year. This spring semester 2014, meetings are from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm every other Thursday, beginning February 13th and going until April 24th. 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, the Art building is the North-Eastern building in the fine arts complex. It is also the newest building.
