Monday Portraits – Online

Portrait artists interested in drawing from a live model are invited to attend our Life Drawing sessions on Tuesdays. Please see Life Drawing under events for more information.

  • Photos of a weekly model are sent out Sunday evening or Monday morning to all portrait painters who have signed up.
  • Create your own portrait in any medium, and have fun!
  • Artists email pictures of their portrait back to the organizer by the following weekend for circulation to the other painters, and post to ArtPod’s Facebook Page, generally on Mondays.
