This is a day of non-stop drawing, open to the public. It's an opportunity for continuous, intensive figure drawing with a model(s) in sustained poses and still life set-ups. Participants of all skill levels, ages 16 and up, will work alongside Silvermine Faculty, Guild Artists Members and students to develop their artistic vision, sharpen skills and energize their studio experience through drawing.
