New Orleans Drawing Group


New Orleans Drawing Group (NODG) was founded in 2005 by New Orleans artist Sandra Burshell, who wanted to keep her in-person drawing group together through the challenge of Covid-19. The group, first organized after Hurricane Katrina, not only stayed together, but grew via Zoom to include artists from across the country and overseas. Through the technology of Zoom, the sessions feature models who can be anywhere in the world, posing from the intimate settings of their own homes.


The New Orleans Drawing Group and Arabi Visual Arts are very grateful to the following sponsors who have made this exhibition possible.
