Join us for life drawing sessions at the Firehouse Gallery.

A model will be booked for each session to pose for the artists.

Sessions begin with the model taking short, athletic poses of 1 or 2 minutes to get everyone warmed up. We will progress with a few 5 and 10 minute poses. The remainder of the session will be 20 minute poses.

Artists need to bring their own materials: charcoal, pens, watercolors, gouache, pencils, and newsprint or sketch pads. Chairs and tables are provided but no easels. Artists may bring a collapsable or French easel. Because of limited space, storage is not available.

Sessions are provided for artists to practice and improve their drawing skills. No instruction is provided.

RSVP here

On-street parking is free on Sundays. Otherwise:

  • The York Street Garage is close by at 1 block south of museum.
  • The Crown Street Garage is about 2½ blocks southeast.

We will meet at the Yale University Art Gallery at 12:30 where our guide, Lenny Moskowitz will be discussing a selection of the Yale University Art Gallery’s permanent collection. The discussion will cover pieces from a variety of time periods.

Lenny’s discussion will last approximately 1 hour. Afterwards we will be free to explore the rest of the permanent collection and exhibits.

New Haven has a lot of great restaurants, so when the group decides we have reached “saturation,” we can find a spot for a bite to eat.

Lenny Moskowitz is a Connecticut painter who lives in New Haven with his wife. He graduated with his BFA from the Philadelphia College of Art and received his MFA from Michigan’s Cranbrook Academy. Lenny has participated in group and solo shows at numerous galleries throughout the US and has taught classes and workshops in Connecticut, Block Island, and Nantucket. Presently, he teaches at Quinnipiac University in Hamden, CT. He has been awarded several residencies, such as at the Anderson Center in Michigan and NISDA Foundation in Nantucket
