Last Friday we had our first life drawing session at the Peninsula Museum of Art!!  It has been a long time since I have had the opportunity to draw from a live model and it was a treat!!  I am excited that we will be having a 3-hour session every Friday for 10 weeks (to start) and I hope it is popular enough to continue on after that.  We had seven artists for the first session.  Most have studios in the building but it is open to anyone who would like to participate.  You can purchase the entire set of sessions or buy a punch card for a few dollars more per session or just pay a drop in fee each week you come with no obligation for any additional sessions.  If you live in the area and are interested, contact me.  It will be every Friday from 11 AM to 2 PM.  You will need to be there a little earlier to set up.  

This time I decided to work with charcoal on newsprint.  Next time, I am thinking I will try working smaller with ink in a sketchbook and I definitely want to try one session using my iPad Pro and work digitally.  Having the drawing sessions each week gives me the opportunity to try lots of approaches and different materials.  

Here are some of the other drawings from Friday.  We started out with 2 minute poses which tend to be about gesture and progressed to the last 3 poses that were 20 minutes each.

It is such a treat to see life drawings and although they are sketches, some of these look quite finished. Hope to see you use lots of fun tools for each session :). And Happy New Year!!
