Life Drawing at the Athenaeum








We had a lovely evening of life-drawing on Thursday the 11th of May. Andy was our model this month and it was great to have a strong male body to draw for a change, the masculine lines and shapes quite a contrast to the gentle female poses we’ve become used to.

There was much concentrated drawing and a lot of discussion during breaks between poses. A great way of learning new techniques and sharing wonderful discoveries of new papers, tools and utensils.








We had a very long pose at the end, giving everyone a chance to produce a finished piece, if they so chose.








Thanks again to the “tidying up team” – always amazed at how quickly it all gets done with all the willing hands 🙂
