In Pittsburgh, there are lots of opportunities to attend figure drawing sessions with a model. The hard part is fitting it into your schedule. I try to go once a week for practice, camaraderie, and inspiration. Here is a sketch from the last session at Panza Gallery. The session was three hours, broken into 2, 5, 10, 15, and 30-minute poses.
