Yesterday, for the first time, I went to a live model session. I’ve often been tempted to go to one but sort of thought you had to join a course. On a whim I googled ‘nottingham life drawing’ and came up with this facebook page.
I went along an found a room jammed with artists and easels – the model was a very professional male who had no trouble with one minute poses or twenty minute poses. Even with the amount of people present the tutor managed to see everyone while they were drawing and offer helpful advice. And what did it cost – only a fiver! Brilliant value for money!
If you’ve never been to a live model session then I urge you to go – if the Nottingham sessions are too far then do a browser search for one in your area – you won’t regret it!
