    The BFAC Fall Figure Drawing Workshop, FIGURING IT OUT, has been postponed. We hope to present it again in January.

    The BFAC Fall Figure Drawing Workshop, FIGURING IT OUT, is for anyone who wants to learn about drawing from life and to develop skills using traditional techniques for realistic drawings. The course will explore graphite and charcoal and their rich possibilities for creating beautiful drawings. It will transform your way of seeing and working in order to create the drawings you want to make.

    This workshop will meet for 6 weeks on Tuesday evenings from 7:00 to 10:00 PM, beginning on November 8, 2022.

    Each session will include short lectures, homework reviews, demonstrations, and drawing from a live model.

    See the event listing Figuring It Out to sign up.

    Come draw with us at our new Saturday Evening Short-Pose Figure Drawing session! The model will take poses ranging from 1 minute up to 20 or 25 minutes (or longer if time permits).

    Our sessions are "open studio" format; there is no instructor. Artists are free to work however they like, in whatever media they prefer. (Painters, please use an odorless medium.)

    All levels are welcome, from beginners to experienced artists.

    Cost: $25 ($15 for monthly members and students)

    Dear Artists,

    Boston Figurative Art Center (BFAC) is an artist’s cooperative founded by artist and teacher Damon Lehrer in 2009 focusing on promoting figure drawing and painting.  BFAC offers a variety of sessions bringing artists of all levels together to enjoy creating artwork with live models. The center has been a part of the Vernon Street Studios community since its inception.  

    Unfortunately, due to the impending retirement of our founder, the center is at risk of losing its lease in October.  BFAC has every desire to keep serving our artist community, but its ability in continuing the figurative art sessions is dependent on having access to a studio space.  While we are pursuing a few leads, we would like to reach out to our community to see if there are other studio spaces we might consider.

    Our studio requirements:

    ·  Roughly 500 - 1000 square feet, with electricity and a floor that can get dirty

    ·  Storage space for a model stand, furniture, and in-progress artwork

    ·  Enough ventilation for oil painting

    ·  Would consider both lease and sublease

    Ideally, we'd find a permanent home, but temporary studio space to keep us going in the near term would be welcome too. Please reach out to us if you have any suggestions!

    Thank you,

    BFAC Management
