The figure often adds life to a scene.
Please join us to draw/paint animated figures in the downtown area. We will begin at the Senior Center and venture out into the cool summer mornings capturing the sunlight casting over the figure to show facial form and folds on clothing. Jo will have handouts and instruction on proportion, value and skin tones. We will have volunteer models and each other. Bring a folding chair, sketchbook and drawing/painting materials you enjoy.

THE ARTIFACTORY is a project of Arts Iowa City a 501(c)(3)non-profit. Our vision is to create a community arts center in Iowa City that includes classrooms, studios, a gallery and store, space for performances and private events, a commercial kitchen, coffee shop and wine bar. It's a place for learning the arts from master teachers, for sharing equipment, and for meeting other art-loving people. To begin testing concepts, we have launched programming through our Art in the Afternoon series and Life Drawing offerings. Learn more at
