The Galveston Arts Center will present its Life Drawing Studio from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Mondays through May 22, June 5 through 26, July 17 through Aug. 7, Aug. 28 through Sept. 25, and Oct. 16 through Nov. 6 at 2127 Strand St. in Galveston.

This is an opportunity for artists to practice drawing or painting the figure from a live model. Preregistration is required and comes in four-week blocks for $40. Participants can choose from the block dates above, or a combination thereof.

For centuries, drawing the human figure from a live model has been at the foundation of art programs throughout the world. Life drawing skills are essential for artists interested in portrait painting, character design, comics/manga, game design, illustration, animation, fashion design, anatomical drawing or just learning to “see” like an artist.

Artists are encouraged to take their own materials; and art supplies are always available in the ArtWorks Museum Store on the first floor. All media is welcome including paints.

For visitors to the island, or those just seeking single classes, the center will offer a $12 refundable drop-in option. For information, visit
