    Nude Drawing in the Galleries

    Thursdays from 2-4pm
    Free with Museum admission

    Effective January 25, 2018, Nude Drawing in the Galleries will be temporarily suspended while we evaluate the program and how best to continue live drawing at WAM.

    Visitors are invited to set-up their drawing boards in the galleries for the rare opportunity to draw from live nude models posing among masterworks by such artists as Veronese, El Greco and Rembrandt. Beginners and seasoned artists alike are welcome to join a studio class faculty member as they teach new skills and techniques, all within the inspirational setting of the museum.

    Make Nude Drawing your perfect Thursday afternoon and become intimately acquainted with the artworks found throughout WAM's galleries.

    Nude Drawing takes place in the museum galleries; permissible art materials are limited to:
    Graphite or colored pencils
    Drawing Boards (23” x 26” or smaller).

    Participants are encouraged to bring their own supplies. Stools will be provided.
