We Make Art Happen™
We’re a friendly bunch of artists who like to get together and share our creative passions.
The pandemic hasn’t stopped us! We’ve got a full calendar of Zoom events, so come and join us for these great events.
Each month we offer a variety of artist opportunities:
Monthly Arts Networking Meeting – a free event, the first Tuesday of each month where we share our creative challenge pieces and give/get feedback
*NEW* Monthly Youth Arts Meeting – a free event for student members grades 5-12, the first Saturday of each month where we share our creative challenge pieces and give/get feedback
Figure Drawing Sessions – both long and short pose and occasionally costumed. 18 years of age or older.
Figure Drawing on Zoom – short, athletic gesture poses, from 1- to 20-minutes
Long Pose Figure Study – after a few warmup poses, the model takes one pose for the remainder of the session
In-Person Figure Drawing – At Sterling House Community Center. Format (long or short poses) will be set by the moderator.
