Dear Students,
the Open Drawing Sessions have quickly become a very popular format and, following quite a few requests, I have decided to offer "repeat" sessions at a different time to make them more convenient to students with different time schedules or from different time zones.

For your convenience, I will number these sessions and specify "Encore" when it is a repeat class.

The first "Encore" session, "Drawing the Hands 1, Encore" is scheduled for Friday, May 14th from 2:00 to 3:30.
This is a live Zoom session and not the recording of the first Open Drawing Session on the hand .
Each week I will be offering two Open Drawing Sessions, the regular from 6:00 to 7:30 and the Encore from 2:00 to 3:30.
Thank you for being part of the New Renaissance Atelier, a small but quickly growing artist community,
