Lounging at Concord Art - maybe a minute
On the Pillow at BFAC - 5 minutes
Seated at Concord Art - 15 minutes
Last week I had the pleasure of attending two life drawing sessions, one at the Boston Figurative Art Center in Somerville, MA, and the other at the Concord Art Association. At both sessions, we started with short poses (3 minutes at the BFAC, 5 at Concord Art), and gradually moved up to 15 or 20 minutes). The BFAC session was on Monday night, and I started with a pen, and moved to pencil for the 10 minute and longer poses. On Tuesday, inspired by the work of Rob Adams, who I met on the Wapping trip I took in June I did a little experimenting at home, and was ready to try water color on Wednesday at Concord Art. That was really fun, though I will bring more suitable paper next time!
Both of these groups have life drawing all winter long. The BFAC announcements are done through www.meetup.com, the price is $25 for a 3 hour session, and a reservation is required. At the Concord Art Association you just walk in, and it's $10 for a 2 hour session. Both start at 7PM, BFAC on Mondays, Concord Art on Wednesdays. Check to see when the next session is scheduled.
