Welcome to the website of the 23rd Street Studio, one of the largest and oldest private figure drawing studios in the San Francisco Bay Area. We are located in the City of San Francisco's Noe Valley district. For more than 22 years we have provided a quality space for Bay Area artists interested in life drawing.

The 23rd Street Figure Drawing Studio is well established, well equipped and well run. It is a clean, warm, and comfortable environment, known for consistently having the very best models available.

We offer both figure drawing classes with instruction and non-instructional drawing groups with live models.

Each term is 22 weeks long. 

We are currently between terms.The new term will begin January 12th. We will be holding drop-in sessions over the next few weeks. See below for times and dates. There are some spaces opening up in both the teaching and non-teaching groups.If you are interested in a spot please call, or come by the studio. By the time the new term starts most, or all of these spots will likely be filled.

If you have any questions about the teaching, or non-teaching groups offered here at the studio, would like to try to register for a regular spot in the new term, or would like to arrange a time to come by and visit the studio and talk in person, please contact us at:
