Recently I complained to a group of friends that something was missing in my artistic life: A permanent studio for live figure drawing, where the fun creative setups could remain and evolve, artists could get together to explore changing themes, and different approaches to working from the model could be explored.

Wei piped up that she had half a warehouse space that wasn’t being used; would I like to try something there. When I found out it was near I-80 on Gilman, had natural light and its own parking lot, I got really excited!

That’s how we started. Wei and I want it to be the place where local artists can meet, learn, and evolve their ideas.
