Today is our Model Extravaganza! (Saturday 4/10)
Our theme for April's event is: "In the Garden"
Inspired by the season, our models will look to their gardens for real (and surreal) inspirations. We're sure there may be a nod to Hieronymus Bosch in there amongst the tulips and daffodils!
This month marks the first of our NEW collaboration with the Washington Studio School, as cohost of this monthly event.
Join WSS each Monday, from 7 to 9 pm EST, for an opportunity to practice figure work from a model live via Zoom in a monitored but non-instructed session. 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. Any sessions specifically advertised as 'Un-draped' will be offered via an alternate video platform.
