Our on-going Life Drawing classes are a great opportunity for artists of all skill levels seeking a friendly, creative environment to practice and sketch in. Join us for uninstructed life-drawing practice at The Dalles Art Center twice a month to improve your skills. Sessions are the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month from March through November.


Using your own materials, you are invited to paint, sculpt, or draw from a live, nude model. All sessions will be monitored, not instructed. There will be opportunities to learn from each other instead. Easels and tables are provided. Group limited to 12 artists. Model fees need to be paid before class, cash only.
