Struggling to kickstart your daily drawing routine? Dive into our 5-day Figure Drawing Bootcamp, where we embrace art through dynamic poses and quick gestures ranging from 30 seconds to 20 minutes. Each day features two unique models, ensuring an engaging experience, with an hour break for lunch from 11:30am-12:30pm.

Immerse yourself in a creative environment, fostering both artistic expression and community. And that’s not all – at the end of the week, showcase and sell your masterpieces during the first day of our Summer Art Market (Saturday, July 13th).

Unleash your creativity and join a vibrant community of local artists!

We’re offering a discounted weekly rate for DRA members! Just $200 for 5 days + the option to sell your work at the DRA Life Drawing booth during the market. Non-members will pay $250 for the 5-day pass. Anyone can drop-in on day(s) they select for $55 each.

Purchase our $30 supply kit (optional), and we will provide a basic set you need to get started. The kit includes newsprint, charcoal, fine art paper, and pastels. Keep any unused newsprint/charcoal at the end of the session!

If you’d like to bring your own supplies, we recommend:

  • 50+ Sheets of Newsprint (preferably 14″ x 16″ or 18″ x 24″)
  • Charcoal (Vine, Compressed, Thick, Conte, White, whichever your preference)
  • Grey and/or Tan Toned Strathmore Drawing Paper (for longer poses)
  • Rags/Blending stumps/Paper towels
  • Kneaded & Solid Erasers

BYO easels and clip-boards welcome! We will have a few + the usual folding tables, but they are all first come, first serve as storage space is limited.

*Note: No oil paint during these sessions due to fumes. Drawing media, acrylic paints, and watercolor allowed.
