OOPS "Life Class Paint Out this Sunday (Jan 26) from Noon until 4:30pm.

Dear OOPS artists...

GREAT NEWS... I have secured a live model for our life class next Sunday. Her name is Simone. She will do a seated long pose from 12:30 to 4:30 with breaks each hour. We are asking for a minimum $5 tip per artist for her services. A simple still life will be set up in the Jean Wenner Studio #1 for those who prefer to paint a still life from life.
