GVA has given us a fellowship where we can share our passion. Time to get into social media, namely Facebook, to share what you are creating with the rest of us! When you have a Facebook account, you can ask to be invited to our new page, GVA Artists Hunkering DOWN and MAKING ART! Just go to that group page and apply to join. If you are an active (paid) member of GVA, your participation will be allowed by the page's moderators.
Portrait models (artists focus on the face) are needed on Mondays from 10 am - Noon. Figure models (artists focus on the entire body) are needed on Saturdays from 10 am - 1 pm. Costumed figure models are needed on third and fourth Thursdays from 7 - 9 pm. Models pose for 20-minute periods, with breaks in between, until the full time has passed. During breaks, models have time to look around, meet the artists, and see what they have drawn or painted! We pay $20/hr/clothed, $25/hr/nude.
GVA board members are interested in your opinions as to the success of our organization. We have extended the deadline to August 15. To provide incentive for you to answer our questions, all survey responders' names will be included in a drawing for TWO PRIZES during the September Critique.
If you have news for our members, have a question to ask, or have any other need to get in touch with GVA, please use the Contact Us tab at the top of this page.
