Studio 1.6 is phenomenal. Last month, Anita organized a private life drawing class for a group of adult novices, which provided a challenging yet enjoyable experience for everyone involved. Anita was proactive in asking what duration, medium, model, and pose we wanted and then she was very responsive by e-mail as we worked out the details. We settled on a 90 minute class, using charcoal on paper, with a professional model from the Bay Area Models' Guild. Anita and the model worked out a pose that not only prevented fatigue by the model, but also maximized our success by avoiding technical challenges such as foreshortening. During the class, Anita provided a very short demonstration (about three minutes) before having us begin, then spent the class offering specific and constructive feedback one-on-one. The 90 minute duration was absolutely worth the slightly higher tuition; 60 minutes would have been too short. At the end of the class, Anita spray-sealed our drawings and provided poster tubes for transport home. You will not be seeing these works in a museum, but that was not the point. The point was to bring our group together through a shared challenge, and it was a phenomenal success, delivered by a professional, talented, and personable instructor. A+ for Studio 1.6!"- David M.
