I’ve been pondering my life drawing, feeling like it’s not where it should be. I’ve been looking at old drawings, thinking about my Sketchbook Project and wondering how it all fits or doesn’t fit together. So I thought it might be a nice pause, between The Sketchbook Project and what’s next, do a short history.
In 2009 I dated a man who was attending some very curious sounding life drawing classes. I had been looking for a life drawing class for awhile and not found one I enjoyed. My university course involved multiple drawing classes every week and life drawing was my favourite. So later that year, when the man moved out of town, I moved in to claim a spot in Ron Curran’s Dynamic Drawing class. It flipped my lid.
