*Monthly Programs:

Join us for our Saturday Nude Figure Drawing session. $5 modeling fee, and make sure to bring your own supplies. Space is filling fast so make sure to come a little early for a good seat! Free street parking or in the lot across the street.

Bring a packed lunch, your artwork or other art to share, or just come for some community. It is a free event, so come and network with local artists!

Art lunch is every Thursday:
Rosewood: Second and Fourth Thursday
DAI: First and Fifth Thursday
Find updates on the Art Lunch Facebook Page:

Constructive feedback can help take your art to the next level. But when an art school teacher isn’t one hand-raise away, it’s hard to find the critiques you need to grow.

Topic: Bring a work in progress to critique, a concept to talk about, or talk about some of the artwork in our current show.

This is a FREE event - come and enjoy constructive conversations! Coffee will be provided.

Never participated in a critique? Here is a brief video with concepts to come with.

*Please verify events by emailing or going to our Facebook page. Sometimes events need to be rescheduled to accommodate community events or other unforeseen circumstances.
