Students and Friends,

I hope you're having a great summer! I am back from Santa Fe and so excited and recharged with information I want to pass on to you. 

I am excited to announce that Anthony Ryder will be coming our academy next summer to either demonstrate or teach a workshop.  I am beyond excited about this prospect since he is our living Rembrandt and a true master.  Watching him work seemed like magic to me.  

While studying at his studio I also had the opportunity to study with a Ryder instructor, John Reger.  John Reger also has some incredible drawing "chops"!  I asked him to come to our academy for a five day figure drawing intensive which he has agreed to at the end of October  

The cost for the full five days is a $500 tuition. These life drawing courses are spendy because we have a live model for all of those five days.    

A few things to know....​​

The model will probably be nude
It will be the same pose for all five days (Ryder approach is long poses- we're talking days with the same pose...)
Upon signing up you will be required to make a $100, non-refundable deposit
The dates will be October 29 - November 2, 9:30 - 4:30
There are no "make-up" sessions
