What People are Saying
“I’m a retired engineer and a sculptor and have been attending the CSMA life drawing classes for more than a decade. The Open Sketch drawing studio attracts a wide spectrum of artists from novice to experienced, from twenty-somethings to octogenarians. We welcome newcomers, encourage each other, and share ideas. Drawing stimulates the hand-brain connection. Drawing at CSMA is much better than sitting at home doing Sudoku!”Frank Moon
“Excellent offerings, talented teachers!”Kim LaRocca
