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.
