Come to beautiful Irving Park for Sketch & Stretch: a summer afternoon of yoga fitness and art-making. Participants of all experience levels are welcome to draw, to exercise, or try both. Keph Sherin, a gifted acrobat and fitness instructor, will lead two exercise sessions — each lasting one hour. Yoga participants will double as our figure drawing models. The number models present will depend on how many people choose to exercise, so please share with your friends!

The current weather forecast predicts sun this weekend. In case of rain, the group will move under an adjacent shade structure. Rain or shine, we’ll stretch our creative and literal muscles together!

Please note: Folks who join in exercising will be asked to sign a standard model release and liability waiver.
