Please note that this class is being offered in Lexington, not in the Somerville studio. There are a few spots offered here as the class is already populated by a number of returning students. If the class is full this month, please put your name on the waiting list, and we'll do our best to accommodate you soon.
This workshop is an opportunity for people of all drawing abilities, from absolute beginner to pro, to come together around the act of drawing from a live model in a meditative way, by slowing down and paring away everything external to the process of observation and creation.
Like a yoga class, the workshops will emphasize compassion and non-judgement, and the deep focus that harnesses the naturally meditative aspects of drawing from a live model to relax the mind and body. Attendees will sit together in a warm and comfortable space, listening to calming music, and observing as the teacher demonstrates simple ways to relax into the process of drawing.
Each participant is free to follow their own meditative and learning path during the sessions. Come draw and relax your heart, brain, and spirit through an experience of communal learning.
Please bring drawing materials- pencils, paper, eraser, etc. Some simple materials are also available if you need them.
Fee: $120 for the 4-week series; please register in advance. If you'd like to drop in to one or more classes, please email the instructor: Damon@bostonfigurecenter.org
