We have a very comfortable, very fun, very safe, long running life drawing group in Central New Jersey, (no photography). All short poses, 2 to 20 min. The artists who draw in the group (M and F) range from professional to weekend dabblers. We do have a lot of male models now, so we are looking primarily for female models.

The group meets Thursday eves and we pay up to $70-$75 (depending on attendance for 2 1/2 hours.

Many references avail if needed. You are also welcome to visit our studio at any time by appt.

Most models don't care but you can see the quality of our group's life drawings either by checking out the Profile Page on this website or you are welcome to see a listing of more of us at my other website: XlDesignsource.com or AlanBrown.com

Finding Art Supplies

I am asked a lot about where I get my art supplies.  It really changes by the year.  Lately I’ve been getting most of my supplies from the Utrecht art supply outlet in Cranbury NJ. If you can’t get to Cranbury or the store on 148 Lafayette Street in NYC, you can order online. Most art stores will have free shipping if you pay enough so best to try to hold off before you make your big order. Utrecht has the most lovely light weight stretcher bars with a lip so you don’t keep hitting the wood while you are painting. I've also gotten to adore their selection of brushes

I found that Cheap Joe’s usually has the best prices on Winsor & Newton Oils and they have sales on the Strathmore 400-8 drawing pads which is a must if you do a lot of life drawing. Sometimes the sales on the drawing pads are only if you buy in bulk, but we sometimes have a few of our artists pool. Probably the best way to buy art supplies.

The only Pearl Paint nearby is the one on Canal St in NYC (The one in Woodbridge NJ closed).  This is a great store if you can find parking or have been weight lifting so you'll be able to schlep everything back on the train.

About

About Us

Our core group of artists has been life drawing together at one studio/arts center or another since about 1985! 

As of now our group meets once a week. At certian times during the year we will run a long pose session during the day.  There is no instruction in any session here. But there is an effort to share and exchange different techniques and styles.

For the short poses the artists who work in our studio use many different media, from pencils and charcoal to ink, watercolor and pastel.  Due to the closeness of quarters, we have not allowed too much oil painting during the short sessions.

 

About Our Models

Believe it or not, we still hire a couple of figure models that have been with us from around the time that we started. We are always looking for new models too.

Life drawing is not like fashion, the commercial idea of handsome or beauty is not always the artists' idea of beauty. Many of our best figure models have not been the classic type that you would see in GQ or Vogue.

Since a drawing is done over time, it actually takes a lot of resolve for a good figure model to stay still in a pose that may be aesthetically beautiful with it's body twists.
