We're taking additional baby steps toward fully opening the studio. Beginning Monday, May 17th, we will no longer require members to sign up in advance online to attend our Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday sketch sessions; plus, you won't need to sign a release form when you arrive.* We will ask you to wear a mask while in sketch unless everyone attending the session has been vaccinated and agrees to not wear them.
We hope to offer an additional evening short pose sketch session on the 3rd and 4th Thursdays of each month; however, before we can start this, we need a facilitator and someone to coordinate models. If you're interested, please contact email@example.com.
