Get ready!!!!! :0)

Classes start next week! Time to start thinking of your Fall subjects 🙂 What do want to see in front of you on your drawing table…small subjects, large subjects, colorful subjects, leaves, grasses, pods, or something from the farmers market.  Take the time to be aware of what’s around you and what catches your eye….apples, crabapples, magnolia pods….it’s all around you :O)

Check schedules and times in the “Classes” section and remember we are back at Ward Pound Ridge Reserve ❤️ See you next week!
