Each Wednesday in June we will draw live models while listening to a reading of Game of Thrones.
Winter is coming. Such is the stern motto of House Stark, the northernmost of the fiefdoms that owe allegiance to King Robert Baratheon in far-off King’s Landing. There Eddard Stark of Winterfell rules in Robert’s name.
There his family dwells in peace and comfort: his proud wife, Catelyn; his sons Robb, Brandon, and Rickon; his daughters Sansa and Arya; and his bastard son, Jon Snow.
The ZOOM LINK will be emailed to you with your purchase.

For many of us, there will be a learning curve using ZOOM. As far as these interfaces go, it is very user-friendly. As with anything new, it takes a little time to get the hang of it. So here are a few tips:
If you can, use a desktop or laptop. They are the easiest to control, and of course, provide you with the largest image for you to draw from. If those are not available, a tablet works well. A phone works well but can be so tiny that the group aspect can get a little lost.
Try to get the best WiFi connection you can. For many us, that means being in a certain area of our home or office. It will elevate your experience, though almost everyone we worked with has had a good connection.
Upon entering: When you enter a meeting, your video and audio are off. You may turn them on as we cannot control your camera and audio, but this is not mandatory. Look for the Video and Audio buttons on your screen. (See below for paragraph on Audio.)
The whole joy of connecting with others in these circumstances is seeing each other. There will be a button on your screen (in different places, depending on your device) that says either Gallery View or Speaker View. WE RECOMMEND GALLERY VIEW. That’s the view with all the faces.
One of the best parts of these sessions is sharing work. During our breaks we share our work (you don’t have to). It is truly a joy to see each other’s work.
