Zoom session, camera & times

Live ZOOM session details:

Our weekly session is broadcast to on-line artists via ZOOM. To draw with us please download and install ZOOM to attend our live drawing session.

The ZOOM meeting begins 10-15 minutes before the session starts. Participants are placed in a waiting room and admitted once we confirm payment.

Cameras & pose perspective:

We offer two camera perspectives. One camera presents a shows view of the podium, while the second shows a portrait angle. At every pose change, the face camera is re-positioned to ensure the artist has a clear picture of the model's face.
