Yay! You did it!

I can't wait to meet you and get going with these classes!

I ask that everyone turns up about 15 minutes early, especially on the first day, so that the various housekeeping bits and pieces don't interfere with your class.

Don't forget to bring some nice big pieces of paper and what ever you feel comfortable to draw with - soft pencils, pastels, charcoal etc.

If you would like to come to the classes, fill in the form below and I will send you details. If you are not quite sure yet, scroll down this page for more details.

Drawing from life

The human form has always fascinated artists and, for many, it is the basis for all drawing. It is as challenging as it is rewarding and enlightening. It hones the artist's hand-eye coordination and, in its infinite diversity, it is always new.

The human body's complex outer structure reveals so much more than shapes and textures. There is much to explore below the surface—bones, muscles, moods, feelings, consciousness and a life lived, all of which make each of us unique. Life drawing can help put us in touch with the magnificence that exists in all human beings.

Life drawing takes the artist through a fascinating process of observation and editing, feeling and application, each in a unique way. It’s a never-ending process—always exciting and a valuable tool in the growth of any artist.

From a happy customer of a life drawing event

Good Morning Lewis, I’m just back in Toronto this morning and am thinking about the weekend. Wow, Wow, Wow!!

The feedback from your session was incredible and it exceeded our expectations in so many ways. The girls couldn’t stop talking about how much they enjoyed your guidance and introduction to this beautiful art form.

We had such a great weekend – but this event topped the activities without a doubt. I think we broke a record for the most creative girls’ weekend ever!

Thanks again for everything, Rebecca
