All are welcome to paint/draw/photograph/sculpt from a live hired model and attend either in person or via Zoom. 

Check the CALENDAR for the upcoming dates.

The Portrait Sessions take place on the first Friday of every month at the Oakhurst Community College. The campus is on Civic Drive, just off Road 426, next to the Oakhurst Library. The college provides wooden table-top easels, but you are also welcome to bring your own.

The session format will be 20 minutes on for the model, a ten-minute break, and then our model will resume the pose.
