Our open studio with live model provides an opportunity to practice the principles of line, mass, composition, anatomy, foreshortening, values, color, and other components of classical fine art.

Feel free to sketch, draw, paint – odorless solvents only – as you are inspired. Contact the facilitator, Sandra Babb, at with any questions.
