    Life Drawing

    Do you ever see shapes in the yellow wallpaper of your bedroom? Do they crawl around, begging you to join them? Well, that’s weird. We suggest you stop reading Charlotte Perkins Gilman and join the real world. In fact, why not take a figure drawing class -- get some fresh air, make some wall art to cover those dreadful walls of yours, kill two birds with one stone. In this Life Drawing independent figure drawing series by Hillyer Art Space, you’ll get the unique opportunity to practice capturing the human form on paper while working from a live model. Whatever your choice of medium may be, this class will improve your drawing techniques as you learn how to properly shade, texturize, and add gesture to your art. When the class is over, you’ll get to take home your masterpiece as a symbol of all your hard work and progress! Capturing a figure on paper never seemed so tangible.

    First Fridays

    Lots of towns have First Fridays. But few towns have First Fridays like DC’s Dupont. Join Hillyer Art Space, one of several other galleries who form a community. This community of art spaces is very special in that they change their installations in sync -- all on the same day (yes, the First Friday) of every month. So what’s in it for you? Well, where do we start? First of all, you get to view beautiful art for an entire evening. This can and should be the first stop of many galleries -- and the great thing is, they’re all close by. Secondly, because this art was all placed on the same day, you will be part of an insider community of people who get to see the freshest art in DC, possibly the first time many of these installments have been up. So it’s a great crowd, whether you’re an admirer or an art buyer trying to begin the next big collection. THIRDMOST, this is such a special event in that it garners community, artistic understanding, and great conversation. That’s a lot for such a low price. What a bargain. If you’re not convinced by this point, you clearly don’t even belong in a gallery. You’re probably just one of those rebel-without-a-cause types who just sits through great advice and then does the opposite, in which case you should probably NOT click the button that says “book now.”
