Open Life and Portrait Classes

Adult Life Painting Class

The Center for Contemporary Art is pleased to offer weekly sessions for artists who are interested in painting from either a clothed (Open Portrait) or nude (Open Life) model. These sessions are without instruction, offering artists the opportunity to paint and/or sketch independently.


Open Life Studio is on Tuesday evenings from 6:30 to 9 p.m. from September 9 – December 16, 2014

  • Fees: Members $10
  • Non-members $15


Open Portrait Studio is using a new format from previous years. Artists may draw or paint from a clothed model sitting for three consecutive weeks. Artists must pre-register for a 3-session class so a model can be booked for the class.  The cost per 3-week session is $35 for members and $45 for non-members.
