The Art Gallery Of Regina has put together a figure drawing session for artists who’d like to draw the plasticized bodies in the touring exhibit Our Bodies: The Universe Within. It sounds interesting. From the press release:
Learning anatomy is one of the fundamentals of figure drawing. This unique session, co-sponsored by the Saskatchewan Science Centre, offers artists a once- in-a-lifetime opportunity to study the musculoskeletal system as it has never been seen before. Participants will spend three hours independently drawing the preserved models at the Saskatchewan Science Centre on display in the Our Body: The Universe Within exhibition. This facilitated session will take place after hours when the museum is closed to the public.
The workshop will be facilitated by Ward Schell and costs $60. No cameras, and pencil, pen and other non-messy drawing implements only. For more information, e-mail the gallery here.
Carle wrote about the exhibit back in the spring. Remember when it was spring? Sigh. Our Bodies has been extended through January, by the way. January is in winter. Sigh again.
