Monday was our last class of the season at The Center. One of our class members (Dorothy) is a concert pianist, and served as our model as we drew and painted her while she serenaded us with Mozart!

The class is looking forward to next Fall. They all have truly progressed in painting and drawing the figure. We then cut the figures out and moved them around in our landscapes so now they are inhabited.

(Many thanks to Mary for the photos!)
