Open Studio Springfield &
Portrait Painters Club
Portrait Painters Club and Open Studio Springfield meet weekly. Pharmacy member artist M.L. Finch hosts this pair of regular events.
On Mondays, Portrait Painters Club meets 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm to practice portrait painting in a relaxed community setting or even simply to work on other projects. The only stipulation in attending is you have to be willing to sit as a model occasionally! Models are clothed, and all skills levels are welcome! There is a suggested donation of $5 per session for participating.
On Tuesdays, Open Studio Springfield takes place 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm. Open Studio is an excellent opportunity for improving drawing skills, hand-eye coordination, and analytical skills in a studio setting among peers. Models are un-draped. The Pharmacy provides easels, drawing boards, and clips. We also have drawing materials if you’re not sure what to bring or don’t have time to bring your own. There is a suggested donation per session of $15, or $10 for high school students.
