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 @ Coconino Center for the Arts
May 5 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Open Figure Drawing Sessions
with moderator Frederica Hall

Tuesday evenings, 6-9pm, May 5 – May 26, 2020

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 four-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 four sessions at a discounted rate: $72 (Arts Council Members receive 10% off!) . 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
