Life Drawing Students



























Tuesday night's Life Drawing class at MECA - we had our final crit this week. Here are some of my amazing students who showed up for 10 weeks and put up with all my zany exercises and drew like fiends from 6:00 - 9:30pm, even though it was freezing and crummy outside and it would have been way easier to stay at home and veg on the couch. Yay, they are my heroes!
So posted beneath each student is one of my favorite drawings of theirs from the semester. I have taken the liberty of titling the work, except for Zack's - the class came up with that title!

Looks like everyone had a great time in your class! There's a lot of variety, not to mention a good volume of work.
Did Zack wear a tie to every class? I like that - very old school.

I think the tie was in honor of portfolio review night! We did all have alot of fun. Great energy in this group!

Hi, Martha. This looks like a really nice group, and some wonderful work, too! Too bad that I wasn't able to model for you this semester -- I always enjoy your classes a lot. Hopefully next time around!

Best Regards,

Ron

Hi Ron

Nice to hear from you! This was a nice group. I'm teaching Life Drawing and Mixed Media Portraiture this summer starting in June, so I'll give you a call in May and put you on the docket!

See you soon!
