Scroll Down for More Info, Current Events, and Model Tryouts
Considered by many artists to be the best place to draw in New York City, Spring Studio is a professional art studio offering ongoing life drawing sessions 7 days a week. Located in downtown Manhattan on the edge of SoHo, on the colorful and busy corner of Spring and Lafayette Streets, the art studio celebrated its fifteenth anniversary of year-round sketch classes this year. Started by artist Minerva Durham in 1992, Spring Studio is known for its excellent models, its prompt starting times, its participants' gracious manners, and for its spirit of artistic tolerance. It attracts artists and students from all over the world.
Draw from the model all day, every day, and six evenings a week in NYC. Learn to draw the figure by relating disarticulated bones to the living body in Minerva Durham's drawing classes Saturdays and Thursdays at 9:30am. Improve your portrait drawing skills Sundays at 1:30pm in the Portrait Workshop taught by Lyle Gertz. Practice approaches from Bargue with Jerilyn Jurinek Tuesdays at 9:30 and from Nicolaides' "Natural Way to Draw" Wednesdays at 9:30am. Study the long pose with Bob Palevich Friday mornings at 9:30am. Bring soft vine charcoal, an 18" x 24" newsprint pad and enjoy long and short poses, gestures and croquis in figurative drawing workshops in the company of serious and congenial artists at all levels of skill development. Beginners are welcome. Walk-in, first-come, first served.
Spring Studio located at 64 Spring Street is an 'open' drawing studio. We have three 3- to 4- and- a- half- hour figure drawing sessions per day (two on Sunday), one in the morning, one in the afternoon and one in the evening. We offer drawing, anatomy, and portrait instruction at no extra fee in 6 classes. Artists who use watercolor, pen and ink, charcoal are accommodated. There are no per-month contracts; if you miss a class you do not pay for it. The art studio is convenient to most subways.
