Instructor David Aguilar
In the Tradition of The Life Drawing Studio
From 6:30 pm until 8:00 pm, we have reference photos of figures in action and repose to draw or paint. The first thirty minutes we do a series of croquis, or short gesture poses to warm up and get those creative juices flowing. The last hour is spent on one long pose. At the end, we are encouraged to share and talk about our efforts and offer positive support in this safe and friendly space.
