    ID: A collage of three figure drawings. The left-most picture is a detailed figure drawing of a woman facing away from the artist's point of view, sitting down on a cushion and hugging a knee to her chest. The picture in the center is simple and only lines, and depicts a woman standing up facing the right with her arms above her head and her elbows bent. The right is a detailed drawing of a woman laying down with a stomach over her arm. END ID.
    Description

    **NO CLASS 10/27/2021.**

    Ages 18+

    Each Wednesday, CTAC-Petoskey offers drop-in figure drawing sessions for $15. Pre-register online or register onsite. 

    *Occasionally sessions may be canceled. Check online for updates before dropping in.*

    Artists of all skill levels are invited to join us for open figure drawing.

    Drawing from life develops your skills in observation, gesture, measuring/proportion, light/shadow, and rendering form.

    Each figure drawing session is facilitated but not instructed. Models will pose nude. The session will begin with gestures and short poses and progress to longer drawings. Beginners and experienced drawers are welcome. Bring your own drawing supplies (newsprint pad, drawing paper, graphite pencils, charcoal, conté crayon, etc.). Easels are provided.

    People who are pre-registering for drop-in will choose how many sessions they want to attend on the second page during registration. 

    This class takes place each Wednesday. Occasionally, a session may be canceled due to schedule complications. Those who have pre-registered will be notified by email. Drop-in participants are advised to check our website and social media pages for updates.

    Class Cancellations (Weather)
    When Public Schools of Petoskey are closed due to inclement weather, CTAC-Petoskey classes are cancelled. We will do our best to provide a make-up opportunity for the missed class. Refunds will not be given if the student is unable to attend the rescheduled session of class. Workshops and one-time classes will be handled on a per-class basis. School of Ballet students are asked to make up the missed class in an alternate session approved by their instructor.

    Student Absence
    We are unable to offer refunds or make-up sessions for classes missed due to student absence.

    COVID-19 Symptoms or Exposure
    If you suspect that you have been exposed to or display symptoms of COVID-19, please do not come to CTAC for your in-person class. We will offer a prorated credit (never expires) or refund for two weeks of your missed class for all cancellations due to suspected COVID-19 infection and/or exposure. If you choose to drop the remainder of your class, you will receive a prorated refund of the tuition of the remaining sessions.

    COVID-19 Class Cancellations
    In the event of a COVID-19 outbreak or state mandate, CTAC will announce the closure on its website and phone system (231-347-4337). Prorated refunds will be issued for the remaining sessions.

    Minimum Enrollment
    Crooked Tree Arts Center reserves the right to cancel any class that does not meet its minimum student enrollment prior to the first class session. If a class is cancelled by CTAC for lack of enrollment, CTAC will offer a full refund to the student in the manner in which tuition was paid. (Cash payments will be refunded by check.)
