These portrait classes are every third Wednesday of each month, I was able to attend the most recent class and sit in as the live model. It was an incredible experience to be surrounded by so many talented artists and to see myself come to life in their work. The class is hosted and taught by artist William McMahan in a private room at the restaurant Mellow Mushroom - so you're able to order yourself a glass of wine, a pizza and sketch away. The class fee is $20 and that includes supplies and one on one critiques from William, throughout the night he walks around and assist you with any questions you have. William begins the class with a short demonstration and then opens the floor for questions from the artists. It's an extremely open and welcoming class, everyone was very kind and willing to help each other out.

You'll fit right in whether you're a first time artist or you've been sketching for yours.  


Check out the next class - Wednesday, July 18
