Once again, we're hosting a monthly Illustration Academy Figure Drawing Session. Our second event is scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 25, 6:00-9:00pm. The session is open to the public. It will be hosted at an artist studio in the West Bottoms (1212 W. 8th street, Kansas City, MO 64101). Each month, we hope to feature a new local or visiting artist who will join the figure drawing session. Start your year off right and come sketch with the Academy!

There will be two models. We provide a limited number of easels, drawing horses, and drawing boards. To ensure you have the necessary support, please bring your own equipment or arrive early.

Entry is $5. There will be nude models at this event, so entry is 18+. Artists under the age of 18, must be with a parent or legal guardian and provide a valid consent form
