Figure drawing studios in Tryon Thursdays and SaturdaysPublished 8:44am Wednesday, September 4, 2013
When the Saturday morning figure drawing sessions ended at The Tryon Painters and Sculptors last May, Nancy Barnett took up the reins and introduced figure drawing on Thursday afternoons from 1-4 p.m.
This proved quite popular and had an enrollment of eight permanent members through June. Alas, it could not sustain the minimum enrollment needed to continue through July and August. The figure drawing classes will be offered again this fall for those who would prefer that time to Saturday mornings. Nancy Neff introduced a new payment procedure to ensure model costs are covered. Nancy’s plan is to form a class of permanent TPS members who pay a set fee per session per month at the first of the month. Some months have four Thursdays or Saturdays and some have five.
A member who knows in advance that he/she will not be able to attend a session or two will be excused from paying for that session (or sessions) at the beginning of the month. The class needs a commitment of six permanent members to run either the Thursday and Saturday Sessions. TPS members who only want to come on a pay by session basis will be charged a slightly higher fee.
