MAA Figure Model Sundays continues!  The Montgomery Art Association and The Compass Atelier are partnering to offer in-person figure model sessions on select Sundays in May and June. 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.

Due to the popularity of this program, we are offering morning AND afternoon sessions on each select Sunday. Morning sessions are 9:00 am to noon ET; Afternoon sessions are 1:00 pm ET to 4:00 pm ET.  Each session costs $10 per person per session to register.

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

Upcoming Figure Model Sunday event dates and models include:

  • May 21, 2023 - Morning - Sara; Afternoon - Jalene 
  • May 28, 2023 - Morning and Afternoon - Sheba
  • June 4, 2023 - Morning and Afternoon - Moe
  • June 11, 2023 - Morning and Afternoon - Sarah
  • June 25, 2023 - Morning and Afternoon - Nataliya

(If any changes to the above schedule occur, MAA will post as soon as practicable.  Event details below are for the June 25 Morning session only; the June 25 afternoon session as well as upcoming Figure Model Sunday sessions will be posted separately.)
