Life Drawing - Studio Evening
Tuesday, May 17th from 6:00PM - 9:00PM
     We invite you to join us for Life Drawing Studio with Cultivate. We are so excited to draw and work with you.This evening is for beginning to advanced artists as we draw our live model. Every session begins with 20 minutes of gesture drawing. If unfamiliar, these are poses that are quick and meant for warming up. Following gestures, the model will pose for 10 and 20-minute increments. Our educator, Shannon Mack, will conduct one complete demonstration each session and is happy to provide any further guidance.

     We will supply large format paper, graphite pencils, charcoal, and masonite boards for drawing. We invite you to bring your sketchbook, drawing materials of choice, and easel if you would like.
Studying the figure is a great opportunity to sharpen observational skills and to capture anatomy with self-expression and intuition.
   Note: for these events at the DAAC, our model will be wearing clothes.
