  • Nude Drawing in the Galleries


    Thursdays from 2-5pm

    Free with Museum admission

    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.
