Figure Drawing at 509Artspace

Spending a few hours with other artists drawing the human figure -- priceless!!

I'd like to thank Nancy Thurston and the other folks at the 509Artspace for hosting the figure drawing session today. It was a delightful session, with an opportunity to draw William in many gestural poses and a few longer ones. He is a dynamic model. They are hosting many other exciting art related gatherings, so check out their website/blog for more information... http://509artspace.blogspot.com

And also for the artist's looking for a studio to call their own, several small to midsized spaces are available for rent at a modest fee. Do seek them out if you need a place to spread out (and out of your home kitchen).

Here is the head from one of today's sketches...

Fun to see the different "takes" and styles from same sitting.
Maybe someday, when I grow up, I'll try figure drawing. *shudder*, scary to consider!

Please do come and just see what it's like to check it out.
And if it gets too scary or if it seems too hard, you just draw a toe, or a nose ... or even stick figure lines to indicate the basic gesture of the person, and viola' ... that's all there is to it. I'd think it would be easier than soldering and all that other metal melting and fabricating that you do. ;-)

Great drawing Laura. I didn't get to see everyone's drawings but this was one of my favorites.
