Did you know there’s sketch club that meets monthly at the Riverfront Renaissance Center for the Arts in Millville for figure drawing with a live model? It’s a nice group with wonderful models.
It’s $10, the fee covers the model. Sometimes Dave brings wine.
Bring your own supplies, all mediums welcome.

Another life drawing session is
probably coming up next week ON!
Details via Meed:
Our next drawing session is scheduled for Thursday, 2/8. Our model will be Warren. He is a great croquois model. Let’s draw him! We can all benefit, like all artists, from working on our drawing. Bring lots of paper, and your favorite fast medium!
Who’s in? RSVP deadline is Tuesday, 2/6. 5pm.
Hoping to work with you. By the way, this life drawing group is nearly 18 years old! Possibly the oldest continually-operating life drawing group in South Jersey! Congrats to all who have kept it going!
See you Thursday a week!
Tonight’s life drawing group meeting at the Ocean City Arts Center is on.
Happy 2018 to all!
Are you ready for a great painting night? We will reinstate the plan we had to cancel for December. Short-Haired Anne will be our model. She will be nude, but using props, and a theme of black, white and red. I am already intrigued. Anne is so good at making a painterly spectacle that we can be sure of a productive evening. So bring your paints and a good canvas to kick off the 2018 season!
Added bonus: See the lovely, and often narrative, work of Grace Zambelli who is showing at OCAC in January. (You can also meet her at the reception the following evening.)
Who’s in? RSVP deadline is Tuesday, January 9, 5pm.
All details are the same: OC Arts Center, 5pm – 8:45pm, $15 per session (exact change please), All mediums welcome except photography, Oil painters must clean up and dispose of terpinoid at home. We have chairs, and some easles. Artists bring everything else, including drawing board.
Newcomer? Direct questions to me via email, or *phone number* (comment if you want her number).
Can’t wait to get back to work!
Musing: What a gorgeous, severe-clear, pristine snowfall! Years ago, I would treasure days just such as this. It meant perfect viewing conditions at the old Barnes Foundation–in the upstairs room where the drawings and watercolors were, shimmering in their understated gold frames. I really miss that.
There’s a group of artists that get together and meet monthly for an evening of drawing from life.
I’m not exactly certain of the date this figure drawing group got started but I’ve been drawing with them for about 18 years. I remember first jumping in on a figure drawing night when it was held at the Ocean City Arts League down on 9th and Asbury. Continue reading “Life Drawing in South Jersey”
