French Leave is a diverse community of artists working out of central Ohio. Our members strive to provide their peers with support, opportunities, and honest, rigorous artwork critique. As we share knowledge, pool our resources, and seek opportunities for the group and for each other, we help one another to make better, stronger artwork and be more involved in our local and national art community.

"As for the scheme I had in my head, it was not a bad one in itself ... a thing quite worth doing, as I still believe. But as I was certain I should not be allowed to leave ... my only plan was to take French leave and slip out when nobody was watching, and that was so bad a way of doing it as made the thing itself wrong. But I was only a boy, and I had made my mind up."
