DRAWING CENTER STUDIO



 


WEEKEND DRAWING MARATHON
TWO DAYS OF IMMERSIVE LIFE DRAWING WITH TWO MODELS

Open Figure is an uninstructed life-drawing studio format whereby professionals, students, and the creative public can work side-by-side in common pursuit of excellence in the discipline of drawing (or various other media) while working from the nude model. This no-performance-pressure environment inevitably leads to new learning, support, and productivity that complements formal study (at the high school, college, or professional level), or other non-figure-related artistic work. Each session is moderated by Manifest Associates who are trained and well-qualified artists and/or instructors at the college level.


Twelve hours of life drawing in two days!

This special offering is generally intended for longer more extended poses. At the moderator's discretion with participant input multiple poses may be set up during this two-day drawing marathon. Each Quarter, we invite a new, special-guest moderator to lead participants through this intensive event. Stay tuned for details about our next moderator.

Participants are welcome to work in various media besides drawing, while taking into consideration other participants and the integrity of the studio space.

Manifest works hard to provide studio opportunities at a reasonable cost, including supplementing operations through grant funding. Therefore this special opportunity does not allow for a per-day registration or fee amount.

For the fee, participants may attend at their leisure, all or part of each day. Registration is required.

LOCATION: Unless otherwise specified, all courses are hosted at Manifest's NEW Drawing Center Studios in Walnut Hills at 656 E. McMillan St. (second floor) (see map and directions below). Manifest's new studio facility provides two studio classrooms, private lesson space, a darkroom, film processing room, and a multi-purpose lecture and class meeting space all totaling over 4000 square-feet. The studios are outfitted with professional equipment, furniture, and study aids.

Drawing horses and easels as well as storage shelf space are available on a first-come first served basis. Supplementary seating, including chairs, stools, and cushions is also available. Participants should provide for their own supplies and drawing board.
