The Center’s Figure Arts Open Studio usually takes place from 10:00am-12:30pm on the first and third Saturday of the month. Join us for uninstructed live sessions of figure drawing with fellow artists. All levels of experience are welcome. Models vary. Chairs, tables, and easels are provided, but please bring your own supplies. Using paints is acceptable, but if you intend to use oils you may only use an odorless solvent such as Gamsol. Ages 18+.
Advance registration is highly recommended as space is limited to 15 artists.
When you register for a class, you’ll be offered three price tiers. The middle tier comes closest to what our registration fees used to be, and covers about 50% of the full cost of your participation in the class – with the other 50% covered by community donations. The first tier creates accessibility for people with limited income, while the third tier covers the full cost of participation – so that we can use community donations to support other people’s registration costs. When you choose to register at the third tier, you directly help support the Center’s efforts to remove financial barriers for others.
The Sonoma Community Center (the Center) strives to create an inclusive, safe community where everyone is treated with dignity and respect. The Center is committed to creating such an environment because it brings out the fullest potential in each of us, which, in turn, contributes directly to creating a community of belonging. In order to ensure a positive, safe, and welcoming experience for everyone, all program participants are asked to abide by the following policies, community agreements, and restorative safety protocol.
