Founded in 2009 by award-winning Boston artist and teacher Damon Lehrer, Boston Figurative Art Center is an artist’s cooperative focused primarily on figure drawing and painting. Located at 6 Vernon Street in Somerville, MA, the center offers a variety of regularly scheduled sessions including classic shorter pose life drawing and long pose painting or drawing sessions (where the same pose is held during an entire 3-hour class or over a series of meetings). The majority of our sessions are not instructed, but occasionally one of our members or visiting artists will offer a class with instruction. Except when otherwise noted, sessions are held in our Vernon Street studio.

In addition to encouraging the serious practice of art, BFAC is a welcoming community that shares occasional social or travel events. While attending sessions, artists can discuss their work with other participants, and provide each other feedback, in a respectful and supportive manner. Free beer, wine and snacks are provided to session participants.

BFAC invites anyone interested in practicing their art to attend our sessions! Participants range from complete novices to professionals; artists with all levels of experience are encouraged to attend. You are welcome to drop in on any scheduled session, however participation is limited by the size of our studio. In order to ensure that there will be a spot for you, session participants are encouraged to join as a member (with discounts on session fees) and pre-pay online . Whether you want to pre-pay or pay at your session, please RSVP on Meetup  so we’ll be expecting you. We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming event!


Our session fee is $25 to cover the model, use of the studio, and refreshments, but if you're a member the fee is reduced to $10 or $12.  JOIN US!

Parking on-street is legal for two hours for people without Somerville parking permits, BUT WE PREFER THAT YOU PARK IN THE LOT AROUND BACK, WHICH IS OPEN till about 11PM. The building is a working factory, so the lot is monitored and safe, though it is a bit of a walk around the building to the front door.
