Wednesdays, 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. 

This combination of instructed class and open studio is designed for students interested in advancing their representational drawing and painting.  Design and work on your own personal projects utilizing the cast collection, figure/portrait models, and still life or interior spaces, assisted by individual critiques and group instruction on topics of broad concern or interest.  This course features intermediate-level instruction for students with prior drawing/painting experience.  Note: Tuition includes a $50 model fee. 

Optional: This course is available for 1.0 undergraduate credit for $1,150 (including model fee). Select credit option when registering. 

This course does not meet on March 22 & 29 but runs through PAFA’s Spring Break.
