The AVAA Life Drawing Program has been a mainstay in the community for more than 15 years, allowing artists to collaborate and to continue their education and professional development at affordable prices, and at a convenient, accessible location year-round.
AVAA hires models for 3-hour intervals for open art sessions five times a week throughout the entire year at the AVAA Building located in central Austin. The sessions provide artists the valuable opportunity to draw from life. AVAA’s program is just $6 per session. It allows artists to hone their drawing, painting, & sculpture skills in an open studio format almost any day of the year without the obligation of signing up for a formal or expensive class. Participants include artists of all levels.
Members or our Life Drawing Program are invited to participate in our annual exhibit at Austin Art Space — “The Austin Figurative Show.”
Our wonderful artist volunteers graciously host our sessions. Without our coordinators, the program would not exist. Please thank them!
