The sessions are open to the public (you do not need to be a registered WSS student to attend) Please register by 5 pm EST the day of the session to receive the link.
Online Sessions are $14/each, and can be paid for by purchasing a single pass or 4-session Constant Creative pass
The Zoom link will be sent an hour before the session begins.
We are all dealing with our own unique and very personal experiences during these pandemic times. A member of our community, Desi Steward, has been dealing with an extra heavy burden during this time.
Desi has been a creative and inspiring figure in the local DC arts community and beyond for 10+ years. With the unique charisma, humor, and wit that we have all come to know and love, he has touched the hearts and lives of those around him in ways he couldn't have imagined.
After his initial Cancer diagnosis a little over 2 years ago, we hoped this year would be the tail end of this chapter in his life journey. Unfortunately, it seems this has been extended.
Desi is once again on a path to recovery. And now more than even before, he needs the continued support of the community on all fronts to continue this journey. If you feel able to contribute in any small way, there is a fund directly supporting him to help with medical and living costs.
Be sure to visit our website for full details about our sessions and policies. Session fees: Sessions are $7 USD for 1-hour sessions, $14 for 2-hour sessions, $20 for 3-hour sessions Registration: You will need to sign up individually with each model and handle payment arrangements with them directly. Cancellation: If a session must be cancelled due to low attendance (2 or less attendees), the calendar will reflect this. Please double check the calendar before contacting the model when signing up the day of a session.
Unless otherwise indicated, the sessions listed on DCAMC's calendar are via *Zoom*. *Where sessions are specifically advertised as 'Un-draped' and offered via Zoom, the models have obtained an allowance from Zoom to be able to safely host these sessions as Educational and Artistic offerings.* By attending these sessions you acknowledge that you are over the age of 18, that attending such events is legal where you live, and that we host our sessions solely to produce art in an educational setting. Where utilizing Zoom is not an option, our sessions will be offered via an alternate video platform.
