FIRST, Thanks to very recent DONORS and CARD BUYERS:
Nancy Bass, Joel Goldman, Kenneth Koen, Ro Lohin. and Lynn Yellen.

NEXT, Thanks to Kimchikim and Erik Peterson for donating a five-panel folding screen, allowing us to realize Lorraine Olson's brilliant idea of having a  model-changing area in the  back of the studio. Thanks to Hussein Omar for picking up and delivering the screen to the studio, 4th floor, 91 Canal. 

BTW, our neighbors in the building have returned, the bus company on the second floor and the Tai Chi studio on the third floor. We will  open indoors for drawing sessions as soon as our lawyer gives us a green light.
