Open Figure Drawing Sessions

(NOTE: This post contains a little nakedness.)

I started going to figure drawing sessions when I was a junior in high school. It's just what you did to build your portfolio to get into a good art school. I did it out of what I thought was necessity (and still agree with that thought) and I did it because I thought it was really fun.

Basically... I. Love. Drawing.

I no longer had to go to extra figure drawing sessions because it was included in my required classes once I went off to college. But after those first two semesters, I stopped. I also stopped drawing for a long time, but that's a whole other story.

Recently, I've realized how much I need to get back to basics. Meaning just drawing what I see. I believe that drawing is a basic fundamental in any art form, and like a muscle it should be exercised.

A friend from high school (and super amazing wedding photographer, Elissa) mentioned that there is an open figure drawing studio here in Austin that is SUPER affordable. ($5 for each class + a tip for the model.) I can totally swing that!

And so we started going.

It's been so much fun and I wanted to share a few of my favorites from the past two sessions.
