Check Out Our Special Interest Groups 

  What is an SIG? First of all, it is not a class...but lots of prompts, good advice and support are usually available.  It is a group of people with a similar interest in a particular subject. Our Portrait Groups, ATC group, Plein Air, and Serendipity Craft groups are great examples. Usually the group is free, except for model fees or use fees and your own supplies.  

What experience level do you need?  Most groups are open to any level of experience as long as you have the interest.  Again, it isn't a class, there is no instructor.  But, you can learn by watching and asking questions from all the others that are in the group with you. The main point of an SIG is to enjoy creating something while experiencing the creativity of those around you.
