Virtual Drop-In Figure Drawing

Drawing from the figure is one of the most important things any visual artist can do to train the eye to see accurate relationships and to translate gesture and emotion. All work, including non-figurative work, will benefit from a regular figure drawing practice.


We encourage all students, and others near and far, to join WSS and the DC Art Model Collective Monday nights. Each session includes a series of 2, 5, and 10 minute poses the first hour, and one long pose the second hour. 


Register by 5 pm EST on Mondays to receive that night’s link. Those who register after 5 pm EST will receive the link the following week. Attendance is taken, and if you are unable to use the link the week you purchase it you will automatically be sent the link until it is used. There is no expiration date for purchased passes.


Varied short poses - drawing or painting

Important Protocols and Etiquette for Zoom-based Figure Drawing Sessions: 

  1. Please mute yourself while the model is posing;

  2. No screenshots or photographs may be taken at any time during a session unless the model explicitly allows it. If permission is granted there is an additional charge for each screenshot to be paid directly to the model. Payment amount and method will be listed in the chat by the model on request. 


Our models are professional, this is their livelihood, and we trust that all participants will honor this protocol.
