Join us for free Summer Sessions of Anatomy at Spring Studio as we draw Disarticulated Human Bones on:

Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 4pm to 6pm between figure drawing classes.

Visiting us this Wednesday is Said Bouftass, Anatomist

who attended L'Ecole des Beaux-Arts and focused on the teachings of Paul Richer.

Last week we drew the proximal articular forms

of the femur and humerus,

based on Bouftass' lecture in which he noted the fact that

the head of the femur is 2/3 of a sphere and the head of the humerus is 1/3 of a sphere.

Thanks to Yasmine Penniman for sharing the drawing above.

She drew it last week during the FREE bone drawing session.


I, Minerva, who founded Spring Studio in 1992,

tend to make slow, long-term relationships with models.

Artists who have drawn at Spring Studio

may buy a ticket at the studio

for a reserved seat for $20 or

for a punch on their cards

starting at 4:00 pm on the 16th.

Artists who hire for ateliers may draw free.

Artists new to the studio

must buy a class card

if they wish to attend the tryouts.

Artists who have drawing cards

may bring a guest for a punch on the class card.




Sunday, July 16, 2017, from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Models may arrive when they wish from 4:45 pm to 7:30 pm, 

ready to do two one-minute, two two-minute, and one five-minute pose.

Each model will be booked for one or two sessions

at Spring Studio in the future, probably in September.

One booking will be for a class that I teach

so that I can see your abilities as a model.
