A Monthly Figure Structure Prix
One full time core student working in Colleen Barry's 3rd and 4th year Figure Structure class will win a $200 prize at the end of each five-week pose. Colleen Barry and a rotating member of the faculty pick the drawing that most exemplifies the artistic integrity, aesthetics and principles emphasized in the class. This school year’s first winner will be announced shortly after October 10th on social media. Colleen also writes a critique of the winning drawing on our blog.

We also offer scholarships for our Winter and Summer Drawing Boot Camps and our Summer Boot Camp for Teens. Last year's winners will be announced when we launch our next competitions. The Winter Boot Camp Scholarship Competition will open on October 10th. The Summer Boot Camp Competitions will open in the new year.
