Honolulu Museum of Art School at Linekona offers a variety of classes, figure sessions, and many exhibits.
Windward Community College offers art classes, an atelier program, and figure sessions on Fridays 9:30 – 12 where there is a series of rapid poses that settle into one hour-long pose at the end of the session. The poses do not continue from week to week. The associated Iolani Gallery has several exhibits per year.
Zwick Academy of Art (in Chinatown) has workshops, and figure painting sessions on Fridays 8:30 – 12 where each pose is held for three consecutive weeks for a total of 9 hours to work on a painting or drawing. Please sign up for the emails if you plan to attend the session so you will know of any cancellations. The atelier program at WCC is now run by William Zwick, so if you are looking for the ZAFA atelier, it will be held at WCC for summer of 2018.
Wet Canvas – a Helpful place to find answers to even the most obscure art questions. It is crowd-source so you will get both the top experts and some opinions, but it’s very helpful.
YouTube has many skilled art teachers. There are high quality tutorials available free to help you tackle those tough new challenges.
