Home of the Arts new monthly Life Drawing workshops give creatives the chance to practice their art.
The two-and-a-half-hour session combines live music and drawing to inspire creativity and allow artists to surrender to their surroundings.
HOTA Producer Sarah Lewis encourages everyone to come along and give it a try.
“If you’ve ever wanted to unleash your inner creativity these workshops provide a comfortable environment for you to dabble.”
“Even if you haven’t drawn before this is the perfect environment to try. The human body is a fascinating subject. The interpretation of it through art can be intuitive and emotional or analytical and precise.’ she said.
Hosted by talented local artist Rebecca Cunningham, Life Drawing at HOTA is an opportunity to draw the human figure in a fun, relaxed and supportive environment.
On what to expect at the sessions, Rebecca reveals, “Participants get to draw a beautiful muse, listen to live music and they leave feeling very content. Some of my regulars claim it to be their therapy or that feel like they have meditated for two hours.”
“My sessions are unique because I incorporate live music with the drawing session. People love it and it really allows you to drop into the space and the act of creating whilst switching off from the outside world. I really encourage anyone and everyone who wants to, to come along and give it a go whether they have a lifetime of experience or none,” says Rebecca.
The workshops are held on the second Thursday of every month in The Basement at HOTA, with the next sessions on 13 September and 11 October. Models, live music and basic materials provided. Tickets here.
