First time, that might be, but did you know that UWM's drawing session is considered to be the oldest running figure drawing class in Milwaukee. The location and the number of models has changed over the years and again recently, but it has always drawn a faithful crowd of enthusiastic artists.
A few years ago the session moderator would have a pot of hot chocolate. If the new moderator, Mario, keeps that up we will see, but there are plenty of great things that have been happening. In 2011 & 2012 the sessions were held in the larger art building on the corner, Mitchell Hall. Mario worked really hard to get two models for every session where he ran a room of short poses and a separate room for long poses. This was a huge advantage for UWM, but because of the lack of attendance it was scaled back to its original size.
Overall UWM has a great history of energetic models who have helped define a new program. With a more adventurous admin behind the scenes it is much easier for models with little or no experience. For seasoned artists it is a delight to draw new models. If your interested in modeling there is more information on the UWM Friday Night Figure Drawing Facebook page listed below.
