The Life Session (Paint in 23A) has a fantastic line up of new models. Come by the day for $20.00 for the 4 hours. Give it a try.  

Pay online or send a $20 check payable to Gold Coast Watercolor Society to Carol Thaw, 16127 Emerald Estates Drive,Weston, FL 33331 

Draw from Life. 
Why? Because working from the live model teaches you the art of drawing - concepts like action (gestures), structure and edges (soft and hard). One of the great surprises in art is that drawing from a model won't just improve your figures, but also your landscapes, still lifes and portraits.
