February 5, 10am-1pm experience what life drawing is all about at the Monday life drawing group, which is part of The Figure Revealed: Artists and Muse exhibit at Sedona Arts Center! There is no formal instruction at this event, which starts with the model taking short, 30 second to 5-minute poses, and then continuing with 20 minute poses for the duration. Guests are requested to bring their own supplies including paper and drawing tools. Easels are provided. Cost is $15. All skill levels are welcome. Because the model will pose semi-nude, Parental discretion is advised. A second, open studio life drawing opportunity will take place at the Sedona Arts Center on Monday, February 5, 10am-1pm. Beginning with ancient cave drawings, early Greek sculptures, through the Renaissance, Middle-Ages, eighteenth through twentieth centuries, and into the present, drawing the unclothed human form, or “life drawing,” has a long history of being key to the development of artists. It requires intense focus of artists’ skills in analysis and execution, while inviting intuitive insights into collective humanity. It develops an ability to interpret emotional and physical aspects of the subject and combines those with creative expression. The Figure Revealed: Artists and Muse exhibit will be open daily from 10am-5pm from January 27 through February 5. It features a collection of art, started in Sedona Art Center’s Monday life drawing sessions over the past four years by 16 regularly attending artists. The show highlights a vast array of styles, expressions, imaginative responses, and interpretations of the human form, which have been created by artists with various backgrounds and skill levels. Come treat yourself and experience the joy of life drawing during the open studio life drawing group, Monday, February 9, 10am – 1:00pm at The Figure Revealed exhibit at The Art Barn Theatre Gallery at the Sedona Art Center.
