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.
