  • Dates: September 14 - December 7, 2017, and February 1 - May 4, 2018
  • Time: Thursday evenings, 7–9 p.m.

The open figure drawing sessions are a cooperative venture; please respect the space and do not disturb setups that are so marked. Be aware that Amherst College students may need to be in the room to complete class assignments. Please return whatever you move to where it was. If there are any problems with heaters, shades, etc., please email Louise (contact below) as soon as possible.
