Life Drawing Sessions-‘Open Studio’ continues each week.  Featuring live model figure drawing, artists gather together to paint, sketch or sculpt from different live models.

The models will provide a long pose, which will give participants time to complete their work.

Teen Night Mondays welcomes all young artists every Monday from 6–8 p.m. Adults meet on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 6–8 p.m.
