Model Self Setup for Zoom Sessions

OFD has put together a document with some suggestions for models for our Zoom sessions. Topics related to lighting, clothing, and camera positioning. We put together this document to help you all get a better idea of what we’re looking for, to provide a better session for our participants. Please take a look. Let us know if you have any questions or comments.

Fund for iPad Pro

Help Us Raise Funds

We received funding to acquire a Wacom MobileStudio Pro 16 and an iPad Pro with an Apple Pencil, with the condition that we raise funds to purchase a second iPad Pro. These will be available for artists to use during Open Figure Drawing sessions at no additional cost.

We are very excited to give artists this opportunity and hope you will help us raise the $1000 we need to purchase the second iPad Pro and Apple Pencil through our GoFundMe campaign.

Plans for Reopening

Probably not till Spring

Westcott Community Center may not be available to us until the pandemic is over. Their current plan is to allow visitors only when they have staff available to supervise. They plan to only have staff available during their normal business hours. OFD uses the center on Wednesdays, after they close, and on Sundays, & they are not open on Sunday. Until further notice, we will continue holding Zoom sessions, & possibly indoor drawing sessions, if we can find another suitable location.
