Tuesday Nights Figure Drawing
6:00pm / Durango Arts Center
Figure drawing is the practice of drawing a live model in different poses. It trains your eye to see things that photographs just can't capture.   This makes you more perceptive in all of your work—   The biggest reason to practice with the human figure is because it has so much to offer. Mastering the figure is about more than just shapes and muscles and bones.

Stop Hesperus Solar | Community Meeting
6:30pm / Breen Community Building
A proposed 155-megawatt Industrial facility will erect up to 500,000 panels, while all energy generated will provide no local energy benefits or local job guarantees. If constructed, it will destroy one of the state of Colorado's largest migration corridors and elk winter range. An estimated 1,900 acres will be demolished from our wildlife habitat, migration and agricultural farmland. Additional consequences include irreversible damage to historical and archaeological deposits, water quality, chemical contamination, additional fire hazards, health risks and much more.
