Description

At Box Hill Art Group we hold monthly sessions to draw nude models in changing poses i.e. Life Drawing. We alternate between male and female professional models. Our untutored life drawing sessions cater for both beginning and accomplished artists.

Life drawing is taught to many budding artists as an introduction into the world of art, even artists that don’t primarily want to specialize in the human form. The human body is a complex object, which allows an artist to learn about a variety of essential techniques. Observing and interpreting the shape of the human body trains an artist to see almost every form of curve, line, and the subtle undulation found in nature.

The two hour sessions begin with five 2-minute poses in quick succession, then two 5-minute sessions. These help the artist with the process of looking and then capturing the pose with simple lines and marks. We then have some ten-minute poses and finish with one twenty minute pose.

There are regular short breaks after every 20 minutes. Coffee, tea and biscuits are provided.

The cost for each 2 hour session is $20 with tables, boards and easels, supplied. Artists must provide their own paper, charcoal or other drawing mediums.

Those in attendance must prebook and pay in advance. Non-members are also welcome.

Untutored life drawing class - nice large room so all participants have space, they have tables and chairs as well as easels and boards, there is a tea and coffee break. Nice warm room and appropriate lighting. The only thing is give yourself extra travel time because the traffic at Box Hill is terrible at the moment and there may be a short walk to get a car park.

Box Hill Art Group has a great room for life drawing. There was a lovely group of people from all walks of life so it was great to share our drawings with each other. I will definitely go again.
