Are you ready for Saturday’s “30-Something” Drawing Marathon? To get you properly excited, here’s the slate of instructors you can expect to see at the 12-hour fundraising event, where a $30 donation allows you to draw for as long as you like from a variety of models and still life setups (created by watercolor instructor Rachel Collins). You can register here or drop by on Saturday — we’ll be at the Duke Street Annex (1 Duke Street) from 10:00 am to 10:00 pm.

The following members of The Art League School’s faculty will be participating Saturday, on hand to provide artistic inspiration. For the schedule of who’s coming when, click here. You can click on the instructors’ names to see samples of their work.
