Life Drawing 6-9pm: Come experience our first life-model session at the Carriage Barn!

The first session on Oct 3 will be focusing on portraiture. Leave your harsh critique at the door and you will surprise yourself by using a playful but observant mindset. Vanessa will be on hand to guide you through some exercises that can loosen you up and find new ways of seeing.
