Weekly Life Drawing

This event is currently on hold until we're moved into our new location. We host a weekly life drawing event. These are drawing workshops with live models holding poses up to 20 minutes, with a different costumed model/theme each week, and limited instruction. The workshops cost $20 to attend, and you can pre-register online.
