Go Figure! Is Starting Up Again. October 6 is On Us!

The IC sponsored figure drawing sessions are starting up again!
Show up on October 6 starting at 6 p.m. and draw for free. Sessions end at 9 p.m.
The first session will be October 6 at the Art Institute of Washington on the 11th floor. Please ask the front desk for assistance with the elevator.

The Art Institute of Washington is located in Rosslyn, VA. The location is very near the Rosslyn stop on the orange line of the metro.

After the 6th, sessions will run every Tuesday and Thursday for the Fall season (with the exception of holidays). The sessions will be held between the hours of 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. on those days.
As mentioned earlier in this post, on October 6, 2009 you can come and draw for free. After that the fee is $8.00/session. As
always, students and faculty of the Art Institute are invited to attend for free.

See you there!
