    Hi, I’m a 55 year old man who’s been recently downsized and I’ve always wanted to learn the art of caricatures. I’ve done some caricatures gigs but I’m a little insecure about my new pursuit and would love to attend one of your caricature classes. Would it be a problem if I stood in the background and observed? I wouldn’t take any time away from the young artists I would just like to hear the presentation and pick up any tips I can. Please let me know as I would love to attend the Wednesday June 29th class at Bryon Township. Thank you very much.
