Artists gathered at an open drawing and painting session at Arts Fort Worth, 1300 Gendy St., on Feb. 14. From 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. every Monday, the open session invites artists to draw or paint freely.

The session includes four 5-minute poses for quick sketches and three 20-minute poses, with time to set up, clean up and take breaks in between. 

Fort Worth models can reach out to Melinda Morrison, who monitors the session, if interested in being a subject. 

Session monitor Colleen Erickson, who lives in Weatherford, said the time of the sessions changed from Tuesday nights to Mondays at 1 p.m after the COVID-19 pandemic began — most participants are retired or have night jobs, Erickson said.
