On February 23rd, Headwaters Arts held a figure drawing session for resident artists of the valley.  Cathy Parkes was a wonderful instructor and her daughter Stephanie Fitch was a most gracious model. We are very thankful to these ladies for imparting on us their valuable knowledge and experience. We enjoyed the exercises and company over the afternoon, ending with a critique,  mingling over coffee, tea, wine, and goodies. We hope everyone enjoyed themselves and look forward to hosting more events like this in the future. Cheers!
