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.
Yet to be determined!
(Future plans include San Francisco, Europe, Asia, Australia, Antarctica, and LEO)
Here's where we've been!
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.See the Photosets
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.See the Photosets
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.
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.
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.
