Sessions run from 6-9pm with the first half hour dedicated to snacks and set-up, and to accommodate those of us who tend to be a little late for things. The drawing sessions go from 6:30-9pm, beginning with traditional short gesture sketching and moving to progressively longer poses. Regular participants can make requests for specific poses and/or duration of poses. Feedback and instruction available when requested.
Cost: $15 if you have your own materials, $20 if you need to use The Art Garden’s materials.
