Drawing in the Gallery at the MFA

Starting in January of 2011 the MFA has enhanced its Drawing in the Galleries
program with the addition of a second model to each session. The public is invited
to draw the human figure the first three Wednesdays of each month from 6:00 - 9:00 PM, with a female model in one gallery and a male model in another. Elizabeth Taylor has been the facilitator for many years, and she has a gift for making the experience a very welcoming one. On any given session, folks of all ages and drawing experience grab a folding stool and gather to draw. Paper, pencils, sharpeners, erasers and drawing boards are all provided and models work clothed. There is a friendly flow
throughout the evening, with a mix of “regulars,” as well as visitors who come upon the group unexpectedly and try their hand. Elizabeth is now joined by a second facilitator, Joe Carrig, who teaches teen drawing classes at the MFA on Saturdays and in the summer program. Here is the best part of all - on Wednesday night admission to the MFA is free. See amazing exhibits and make some art of your own in the most inspiring setting and for the best price in town. Here are some of the art created at a recent Drawing from the Gallery session.
