It was standing room only when Ramona artist and teacher Carol Ravy announced there would be a live cowboy model in the room.
As part of her Acrylic Painting for Adults series in Ramona Community Library, “Captain” Jim Cooper, who also participates in re-enactments using authentic costumes he designs himself, posed for the group in different outfits on Monday.
According to Librarian Ellie Slade, students came from as far away as El Centro, Borrego, Warner Springs and Julian.
Future art classes taught by Ravy at the library include Spirit Animals for Adults on June 16 at 11 a.m. and Ramona Landscape Collage on July 23.
The free classes are funded by Friends of the Ramona Library.
