Life Drawing Sessions

Every Wednesday, 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Fee: $10 per night

These sessions are open studio, no instruction is provided.

Each session starts with 15 minutes of one minute gesture drawings, followed by longer poses of 5 to 30 minutes. The first Wednesday of the month will have 10 minutes of one minute gesture drawings followed by one long pose. This will give artists a chance to develop a more finished piece of work and use different media, if desired. The gesture drawings are used as warm-up exercises for both the model and artists. Although charcoal and pencil are the most popular media, artists also use pastels, ink and water media.

    Exhibiting YOUR art work ... you CAN do it!

    If you have been undecided or hesitant about entering shows, LAAG wants to help you become comfortable and confident about entering exhibits.

    Claudia LeJeune will cover the different types of LAAG shows, why you should be entering, and everything you need to know about how to present your work.

    Are you are curious about what judges look for and are intimidated by a prospectus? Then this workshop is for you! We will also cover some cost-saving tips and answer your questions!

    Supplies: Bring something to take notes. We will have lots of handouts to take home.
