Mother & Baby Drawing Sessions

Cheryl Chapell of the Edgewood Gallery has requested OFD to provide mother & baby art for an installation in the maternity wing of a local hospital. To provide this art, we will be having a few mother & baby drawing sessions in the next few months. If you would like to sell your art, you will be paid $50 - $100 for each piece of art, unframed. More information will be coming soon.

The first mother and baby session will be Sunday, July 23, 1 - 3 pm.

Annother Mother & Baby session will be on the 3rd Sunday in August, in place of the usual long pose drawing session, August 20, 1 - 3 pm.

Regular prices and rules apply.
