Life Drawing Classes

Whether you’re a beginner or an advanced artist, pay-as-you-go life drawing sessions allow you to develop or refine your life drawing skills. With a per-session limit of 25 attendees, these intimate life drawing sessions allow you to draw the figure at your own pace and receive individual critique from the moderator. 

CIA provides the model and the moderator. Just bring your favorite drawing or painting supplies!

Current Session:

  • Wednesdays, 7-9pm
  • August 29-November 14
  • Room 302

Doors open at 6:30pm. It is recommended to arrive between 6:30 and 6:45pm, leaving enough time to register and get settled in the room. Students will not be admitted after 7pm.

Life Drawing sessions are facilitated by Eddie Mitchell

Eddie Mitchell received his BFA from the Cleveland Institute of Art in painting and drawing in 1987 with a top traveling scholarship award. Eddie has taught art classes at Lakeland Community College for the past 22 years. At CIA, he has facilitated the evening Life Drawing classes, co-taught the Foundations in Art + Design Pre-College summer program and the Portfolio Preparation class since 2009. He has maintained a full-time studio for the past 28 years. His work is represented in several galleries across the country. Eddie has been in over 150 art shows, created numerous commissioned pieces for public locations, and sold over 1,000 paintings. His experience and passion for creating and teaching art have assisted numerous students to win recognition in various art shows. Eddie has also helped many students to prepare work for their art portfolios for college admission, in hopes to increase their chances of earning merit scholarships based on a high-quality portfolio.
