Actual life drawing is back

After a long break I am really pleased that we are able to start life drawing sessions in Warminster! I know the artists have missed our sessions but it has also been really hard on our models who have obviously not been employed much during the last 6 months.

Anyway, we’ve had a couple of test sessions and everything ran smoothly so we are going for 5 weekly sessions starting on the 17th September.

Sadly our sessions in Bradford on Avon will not be able to restart as due to the small size of the hall and getting enough people in and still maintain social distancing rules! Fingers crossed for a vaccine and complete lifting of the restrictions and then we can think about starting again.

Well we already knew this didn’t we?!

My friend Sophy and I have always said that life drawing is not only a place to improve your drawing skills but one where you can empty your head of all invasive thoughts.

Laura Freeman obviously feels the same.

This section is taken from a long article in the Telegraph recently about the many benefits of life drawing.

“Forget yoga, mindfullness, spa days, there’s nothing to match the meditation of the life room. There’s something about the courteous compact between model and artist, the dignified silence, the utter focus that banishes all other worries and distractions”
