Immersion in other cultures stimulates the creative process and is great for the soul; we love to meet and draw with other artists around the world. Our travel plans were curtailed by the pandemic, but now we’re starting to ease back onto the road.


No sessions are scheduled, but we may show up at one or more of the excellent venues already offering open figure drawing!

(Future plans include Europe, Asia, Australia, Antarctica, and LEO)


Here's where we've been!

JDTB back in the city

Ireland & England

September & October, 2022

We had a blast doing more Undrawing workshops and some figure drawing salons with our friends abroad, including:

JDTB in New York

Brooklyn, NY

February & May 2022

We co-hosted live sessions with the excellent Brooklyn Figure Drawing meetup group - and held an awesome live and Zoom workshops on Undrawing the Figure, updating the workshops we led in California in January.
Streaming replays available.

JDTB in California


January 2022

We kicked off the new year on the west coast with workshops and untutored salons in Los Angeles at the excellent ArtShare L.A. with our favorite model, Deyanna Denyse, and in San Francisco at the wonderful studio of Diane Olivier with the epic Emily Metalskin, Titania, and Prudence.

JDTB in Budapest


Fall 2021

We had a wonderful trip to Europe, from where we continued our twice-weekly salons from various ports of call - Paris, Dublin, and Budapest. We held pastel figure drawing workshops in Henley-on-Thames, U.K. and in Dublin, Ireland. It was marvelous.

JDTB in New York

New York City, NY

June 2021

We co-hosted a live session with the excellent Brooklyn Figure Drawing meetup group - their first in-person session in over a year!

We also held a live and Zoom session in Central Park. The weather was perfect, our tech cooperated, and we even managed to take a photoset of the session.

JDTB in Denver

Denver, CO

Spring 2021

The first in our Traveling Girl series of narrative sessions, which we essentially invented because we could find no public venues from which to stream. Necessity is the mother of invention. This also led to the beginning of our photoset offerings, which has proven to be a popular adjunct to our live offerings.

JDTB in Atlanta

Atlanta, GA

Spring 2021
Fall 2020

Our first on-the-road session with new friends with whom we’d previously drawn only virtually came during a lull between lockdowns in Fall 2020. Everyone was even cooler in person. Our second visit six months later was even sweeter. Our favorite starchild, Deyanna Denyse, joined us both times and brought her special magic.

JDTB in Paris

Paris, France

Fall 2019

The trip that started it all. These small, intensive workshops, held in a small, rented storefront in wonderful Montmartre, set the stage for virtually everything that’s come since. Our students traveled from as far away as Greece to draw and learn with us.

pre-JDTB in Dublin, London, and Paris

Dublin, London, Paris

Fall 2018

The scouting trip. Drawing with groups in London and Paris was sublime; their warm welcome and convivial atmospheres became the model for how we’ve since conducted our salons, both online and off. We’ll return soon.

Again, holler if you'd like to host JDtB!
