Last term I enrolled in our drawing class with Shannon Smiley. I loved coming each week and being guided through my drawing practice.
An aspect of the drawing class that I had not realised was the pure joy of having two hours of quiet methodical practice blocked out each week to simply focus on drawing. Like most people I find my life tightly squeezed from all directions but to come and do such a peaceful and expansive activity was just wonderful.
This term we are trialling a casual drawing group. Each week there will be a still life set up to come and practice in an unstructured environment with a group of peers.
