The new arrangement will start from Term 3
In my last blog I wrote about the benefits and pleasure of life drawing this was written as an encouragement not only to my students but to other artists and students who may read my words. Many of us who are professional artists understand it as an essential form of practice as an aid to our painting drawing or illustrating, sadly not every artist or student appreciates that.
Over the years I have become aware through models, teachers, artists and students the number of life drawing classes has been in decline around Sydney, unfortunately even we have not escaped the declining number of students. On the other hand, the number of enquiries for the drawing & painting class for beginners was increasing, so we came up with a great idea.
Monday night will now become a beginners drawing and painting class for new students, but for our existing students including iPad Art students an extra class has become available.
I still encourage our students to do the life drawing once a term in the Monday night class and Wednesday night class. We also will increase the Saturday morning life drawing workshop from once to twice a term.
I believe that the new arrangement will give more of a chance to many of our students to experience the benefit of the life drawing.
