A model is organized each week for the group.  The model poses in the natural form in an extended pose. On occasion a draped model may be brought in, but this is only with agreement of the group. Participants work in the medium of their choice and provide their own materials. Easels are available on a first-come, first-served basis. There is no instructor in this class, learning is in the doing and the sharing among participants. Beginners as well as experienced artists are welcome.
