Life Drawing Meetup
  Last Updated

Session Description:
Been meaning to draw more? And meet great people too?

Do both! Come relax and learn with us at The Artists Showplace!

The Artist Showplace Gallery (located in northern Dallas) is home to a weekly life drawing meetup. These sessions take place in an eclectic gallery, a fixture of the north Dallas art scene for nearly two decades, with an appropriate selection of music that brings a creative flow to our participants. In this 12,000 square foot gallery, there are two large classrooms on the second floor where these meetings are held.

It only costs $20 to participate.

The main purpose of these meetups is to provide a wide variety of figure drawing opportunities. Life drawing is a drawing of the human from observation of a live model. Many artists consider this form of study to be the most effective way to sharpen artist skills. We have people of all ranges in experience, from the complete beginner to the very experienced.

It is very important to have the perfect atmosphere to create a drawing state of mind. That is why our sessions take place in our eclectic gallery, a fixture of the north Dallas art scene for nearly two decades, with an appropriate selection of music that brings a creative flow to our participants. What makes our Meetups different? We like to share our work and hangout to talk and admire art. Share tips and learn from people in a casual environment that is friendly and non-judgmental! All levels of artists are very welcome!

Absolutely no experience is necessary, just a desire to explore your creative side! Our aim is to provide a warm, supportive and inspirational environment for all who want to join.

We hope to see you soon!

- Paper: Strathmore is a common, quality brand found in places like Hobby Lobby, Michaels, and Joanne's. There are special kinds of paper for watercolor or pastels, so keep and eye out based on what medium you are using.

-Pencils: For life drawing, working loosely tends to be more effective for the time allotted than taking a tight and detailed approached. An Ebony Graphite pencil from a reliable brand like Prismacolor is effective for a loose approach. A Pentel mechanical pencil is effective for a tight, detailed but more time consuming approach.
