MAA Figure Model Sundays returns for 2023!  The Montgomery Art Association and The Compass Atelier are partnering again to offer five in-person figure model sessions on select Sundays in March and April. The 3-hour sessions are moderated but uninstructed, providing artists with focused practice time in the studio. Bring along any drawing or painting media that suits you.

If you're unable to join in person or not yet comfortable joining in person, we also offer a Zoom option.

Upcoming dates and models for our first 5 sessions include:

  • March 5, 2023 - Sheba  (SOLD OUT for March 5 in-person attendance, but you can still register to attend online via Zoom!)
  • March 12, 2023 - Moe
  • March 19, 2023 - Sarah
  • April 2, 2023 - Jalene
