New Orleans Academy of Fine Arts

Registering now for our summer semester: June 4 - July 27

Open Studios - Summer 2018

$15 per three-hour session
 

Our open studios offer opportunities to practice drawing  and painting the human figure from a live model in a welcoming and respectful atmosphere. The studios take place in our beautiful 3rd-floor atelier at 5256 Magazine Street, offering north light during daylight hours and ample artificial lighting at night. The Academy provides plenty of easels, drawing benches and chairs. Participants bring their own preferred art supplies. Experienced monitors ensure that our studios are run at a high standard.

long-pose studios
one continuous pose for the whole three-hour studio, the model posing for 20 minutes at a time, with 10-minute breaks in between

short-pose studios
the session will typically begin with 1- to 2-minute poses and progressively work up to a 20-minute pose

All are welcome: this is where experienced artists and art students at all levels mingle. You do not need to be enrolled in classes at the Academy to participate.

There is no instruction at these studios.

Open studios only meet during the semester.
