Over the past few years, the BVIS students involved in our Student Association of Medical Artists (SAMA) have been putting together open figure drawing sessions for everyone. For the BVIS students, its a great break from the daily grind, and a chance to get back in touch with the figure drawing we did before coming to UIC. It’s also exciting to meet other figure drawing-loving people in the Chicago area. Students start out with quick 1 minute gesture drawings and move on to 5, 10, 15, and 30 minute poses with a live model. Last night’s turnout was a huge success! Here are some of our favorite sketches.
The figure drawing sessions are continuing all fall semester from 5 to 7 pm on the following dates. Each session is only $5 and it’s open to anyone of all skill levels! Thanks to SAMA for hosting these events and see you on October 15th!
