Corona virus update: While we are all hunkered down at home because of this virus, I will be teaching my current classes online. I do hope to return to in person classes as soon as possible. When that will be possible is presently unknown!

I am planning to teach an outdoor drawing class as soon as the weather warms up,  listed below " to be decided." We would all keep 6 feet apart and I would have to have students put their drawings down so I can look at them while they step back, and then  talk about them from our safe social distence.  This is less than ideal, but currently necessary. In event of inclement weather, instead of working together in my studio, I would teach on Zoom, or postpone a week if all agree. 

Keep safe and be well, 
Claire
