Open Figure Drawing
Tuesdays, January 23 – March 26, 2024 | 6:30-9:30 p.m.
This is an opportunity to draw from a live model without instruction. One model provides a variety of quick and sustained poses. Participants can choose to pre-register online or pay at the door. Students under the age of 18 must have written parental permission to attend.
Continuing Education Registration Policies
Enrollment is on a first-come, first-served basis. Class sizes are kept small to facilitate individual instruction. Early registration is strongly recommended. A minimum number of registrations (usually 8) must be received for a class to be held. Class tuition and fees must be paid in full to guarantee enrollment in a course.
Art Supplies can be purchased at Blick Art Materials across from MIAD. Please call Blick at 414/278-0407 for their hours.

If MIAD’s Youth + Community Programs cancels a class, your fee will be refunded in full. If a student wishes to drop a class, a refund, minus a $15 processing fee for each fall or spring semester class, or a refund minus the $100 deposit fee for the summer program, is granted if notification of withdrawal is received in writing on or before the registration deadline. Refunds will not be granted after that time.
Any class cancelled due to weather, instructor illness or other circumstance will be rescheduled one to two weeks after the conclusion of the class. There is no prorating of tuition if the student cannot attend the make up session.
A letter or e-mail of confirmation will follow receipt of a completed registration. Downloadable supply lists for fall and spring classes are posted on the pre-college webpage.
