The Arts Council presents a variety of events throughout the year, at the Coconino Center for the Arts and in other venues around Flagstaff. At the Center, you’ll experience art exhibitions, compelling concerts, and more. Around Flagstaff, we host performances on downtown Flagstaff’s Heritage Square, concerts in the idyllic setting at the Arboretum at Flagstaff, and Navajo Rug Auctions at the Museum of Northern Arizona.

Open Figure Drawing Sessions
with moderator Frederica Hall

Tuesday evenings, 6-9pm, December 3, 10, 17 & January 7, 14, 21

The Flagstaff Arts Council will host open sessions for artists to draw from a live model in the main gallery at the Coconino Center for the Arts. The six-week series is for those artists who would like to practice drawing or other art working from a live model but do not wish to have instruction. Participants may register to attend all eight sessions at a discounted rate: $100 for Arts Council members and students, or $108 for the public. Otherwise, participants may sign up for individual dates at $18/session for members and $20/session for nonmembers. Drop-in’s welcome!

Please note that there is NO instruction provided. Frederica Hall will be the moderator and help direct the model and take requests from participants on poses and timing. Other than that, participants are on their own to draw or create using the model as inspiration. No materials are provided. Participants are encouraged to bring easels to use. Some drawing horses are available on a first-come-first-served basis. Advance registration is strongly encouraged even for a single date; drop-ins are welcome but may be turned away if the session is full.

Frederica Hall follows a multi-disciplinary approach in the arts, working primarily in visual arts that source performance-art and vice versa. Her work is informed by the mysterious surrounding cosmos, reflections on myth, metaphor, and humanities’ uncharted origins.  

To register in advance please email Sarah Smallwood, ssmallwood@flagartscouncil.org

Jan 27 @ 6:00 pm – Mar 16 @ 9:00 pm

The Flagstaff Arts Council presents a weekly Figure Drawing Workshop led by Shawn Skabelund beginning Monday, January 27, 2020! This Intermediate/ advanced level workshop consists of seven sessions drawing from a live model. The sessions will be held in the gallery at the Coconino Center for the Arts on Monday evenings, 6-9pm.

In this course, participants will be given the opportunity to draw multi hour long poses to create finished drawings. Students will use the figure as a compositional device and will be given specific assignments to work these compositions out. Students will produce a minimum of three complete compositional figure drawings by using a variety of materials and mediums.

This is an opportunity to study and receive personal instruction in figure drawing from award-winning artist, Shawn Skabelund.  Shawn received his MFA from University of Iowa. A nationally exhibited artist, his work has been featured in Sculpture Magazine and numerous regional publications. Shawn is also a Viola Visual Arts award winner for his exhibition Virga: The Hunt for Water.

NOTE: This course is for those who have completed Beginner Figure Drawing with Shawn Skabelund or another instructor.
