It's a great way to keep in practice if you can't take a class.  They offer a place for artists of every level to practice and improve their craft while they collaborate, share ideas and learn from each other in fun and the creatively supportive environment.  

 

Open Studio, otherwise known as 'Life Drawing' or 'Life Studies' is an old academic tradition. It provides an opportunity for students to practice drawing or painting from a live model outside of a class.  Students work without an instructor, observe the work that others are producing within the session, or share information with each other while the model takes breaks.
