The human body is an excellent subject to draw as it reflects temper, emotions and mood and that’s why life drawing sessions have started up again at the McMillan Arts Centre.

Drawing live models in the nude is an old masters' artistic tradition from Europe. Thousands of artists have been drawing since the Renaissance.

Life drawing brings all levels of artists together, whether they are professionals, amateurs or students. Everyone and all levels are welcome.

The sessions are held in a respectful environment where everyone is there to learn the art of the human body and practice their sketching skills. Sketching can mean drawing, sculpting and painting. There is no instruction, only friendly support.

Models are all genders, shapes, sizes and ages. Usually life drawing is for adults, but minors can attend with written permission from their parents.

The $10 drop in fee covers the space rental and model fees.

Bring your own art supplies.

The sessions will run for a trial period of four weeks ending June 10 (the first session started May 20), and will be held again based on popularity. For more information please call Mehdi Naimi 250-240-1221.
