A few people have asked me recently about whether this ever happened and if it's likely to happen again.

I DID recently do a workshop for NYC Less Wrong folk (publicizing it on the NY list). I will probably be doing more, sporadically. However, I will probably not be approaching it with the level of rigor I'd need to really gain knowledge (testing different drawing and teaching techniques and seeing which are most effective), in a way that would make me feel justified about writing up the results on Less Wrong.

If you're in the NY area you should probably get on the NYC mailing list, because there's a lot of LW events going on that we don't publicize broadly. Future drawing workshops will be posted there.

Regardless, this website is a very good source for gesture drawing training:
