X's 8 Life Drawing

In 1985, eight artists who had been working together for several years through a weekly figure study group, decided to exhibit together and subsequently formed a non-profit corporation, Times Eight, Inc. The group has survived many changes, artists coming and going, changing locations, various group sizes. Times Eight continues to provide artist in the Birmingham area an outlet for figure drawing sessions and an ability to show thier work with a group.

We meet at Forstalls Art Store, on Tuesday nights. Drawing sessions last from 7:00pm to 9:00 pm.
Sign up for the month on the first Tuesday. The first Tuesday of each month the model is clothed.

Cost for the month is $20 or you may pay a drop in rate of $7.

The 2009 renewal for membership is $35 for the year. Membership benfits include discounts @Alabama Art, possible wholesale framing, and only members in good standing can participate in the Times Eight show.

Times Eight would not exist without the support of its members. We are always looking for new members, so please invite friends to join us in drawing sessions and to join the group. We hope to see you on Tuesday.
