Bring your drawing pad, all your art supplies and join in with the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art (BIMA) as it offers up GO Figure! — ongoing figure drawing sessions.

In this episode of What’s Up Bainbridge, your host Lyssa Danehy deHart talks with BIMA’s Kristin Tollefsen and Tracy Lang about the GO Figure! program.

BIMA is committed to providing the art community access to live models and the space to draw, paint, or sculpt the human form. Artists will have the opportunity to work directly from the human figure. It is a wonderful way to hone your technical skills while exploring variations in lighting, poses, and settings.

In the future Tracy hopes to have a wide variety of models, from the Theatre to Yoga practitioners, to offer artist a wide variety of human models. GO Figure! sessions are non-instructed sessions are coordinated and supervised by artist Tracy Lang.

The sessions are ongoing on Monday evenings from 6:30 to 9:30pm, in the BIMA classroom. All levels are welcome, so it’s time to get drawing!

Pre-registration strongly encouraged: space is limited and priority will be given to those who have signed up for the entire series. Check for pricing. You can easily sign up for GO Figure! at:
