Anyone artist (18 and over) in the community wishing to draw from the model is invited to participate for a fee of $15.00 per person. Any funds collected above paying the model’s fee will be donated to The Jacksonville Center.

Participants will need to bring their own easels, drawing boards, and all other drawing materials they wish to use. Non-drawing persons will not be allowed in the room.
