TSOFA Is currently offering open sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Beginners, amateurs and professionals welcome.

The Society stresses individual expression through an understanding of the classical methods of drawing and painting: learning to draw the mass and planes of the human form, developing a drawing procedure, understanding figure structure, proportion, anatomy, developing light and shape, and analyzing design and composition.

Individual instruction is the primary focus with demonstrations given at the beginning of class and during model breaks.

The Society of Figurative Arts currently offers on-going Figure drawing classes and portraiture. All life drawing sessions use experienced nude models.

Demonstrations are also given in a variety of mediums: pencil. charcoal, pastel, pen and ink, watercolor, and oil. All easels, academy benchs, and drawing broads are provided, Sofa members (students) receive discounts at Asel Art Supply and other area stores with member card.

Session Description:
As a teacher of life drawing, I encourage you to learn the role of the nude in the history of art and to communicate your ideas about humanity through your work. Each of you have special qualities that you bring to your artwork; and, I try to structure classes that will help you advance your concepts and techniques. Questions and suggestions are encouraged and are a means of providing information that others may also want: let me know what you need! If you would like to work in a particular media or a demonstration of a technique, please let me know; and I will try to incorporate it into our classes. If you have your own agenda, feel free to pursue it.
