On the last Friday of the month we have gestures and then one long pose for the rest of the session. Coffee and refreshments are available. $20. per session. Cash, Checks, Zelle and PayPal are accepted.

Free Critiques!

That being said, I am happy to offer advice on how to improve on any projects you have going on. Email me a photo of your painting/drawing and I will critique it at no cost to you. Sometimes it takes just a little suggestion to steer you in the right direction.
