These workshops start at the scheduled time. We strongly urge artists to arrive at least five to ten minutes early to avoid disturbing a modeling session in progress. Plus: the earliest to arrive get the best seating!

Scheduled this month: John and Johnny

Each month the Foundation offers a friendly and positive environment to
practice your skills. From unsure beginner to master artist, working
with a live model provides unique challenges and opportunities unlike
any other, giving each Workshop its own kind of excitement. Plan to
attend!

Workshops are held once a month (usually the 2nd or 3rd week of the month) on Sundays. 2:00 - 5:00 PM. Please sign up for our Dispatch e-news to receive reminders of future Workshops and other Foundation and erotic art events.

Miguel has created murals for the Los Angeles MTA, and bus ad campaign for LA County Office of AIDS - AIDS/Living Responsibly campaign.

MATTERS OF SIZE
“Cock size doesn’t matter to me. I didn’t start doing those gigantic cocks until the censors let the magazines publish full frontal nudity. I had to come up with something you couldn’t get in a photograph. So those big cocks are all for the other guys — I’m an ass man myself.” — Tom of Finland
