This class is a maintained safe space: anyone being disrespectful or ‘body-negative’ will be asked to leave. Reporting and discussing any problems related to these topics are encouraged. Drawing instruction and assistance with techniques will be available. All skill levels are welcome. Models are wanted for upcoming months.
