Studio 23 partners with The Bay Area Models Guild to bring you our 3-hour figure drawing session hosted by Yolanda Cotton-Turner.
This is a 3 hour, self-guided, no pressure workshop for adults of all skill levels to practice translating the human form! Expect to challenge yourself, expect a supportive group, and expect to see your skills improve as you come back again & again.
We meet once a month, every 3rd Friday ... please come out, relax to some easy music, BYOB/BYOM to let the good vibes flow, and practice drawing with us!

Session Begins: 7PM sharp! (Door locks at 7:00PM)
