“The BSSS is truly a beneficial addition to the community and to each artist who participates in the unique and diverse programs. There are very few organizations that can compare to BSSS”
– Barbara Wachter, BSSS Member
Open Session – Figure
Beverley Street Studio School believes that a rich understanding and appreciation of the human form is an important foundation of art training and essential to the success of both figurative and non-figurative art. On Friday’s (except from December 15-March 15) a model is scheduled for a self-guided figure drawing/painting session for members and community artists to attend. This monitored open session is for participants of all levels who like to work from a model using their own media.
Sessions are held on Fridays from 10:00 am – 12:30 pm. Pay $10 cash at the door per session. Each attendee will be expected to follow the BSSS Open Session Policy & Procedure Guidelines. Please review before attending.
NO SESSIONS FROM DECEMBER 15 – MARCH 15. Be safe and continue your practice at home.
Volunteer Coordinator, Karen Robertson who has a BA in Art from San Francisco State University and has taken multiple figure classes and workshops at BSSS, tends to model poses and lighting. This is a self-guided practice.
