Life drawing classes come to Rockland

Jan 09, 2020

Rockland — For the first time, the Knox County Art Society (KCAS) is offering “Figure & Portrait” sessions in Rockland. Featuring live models, they will run on Sunday afternoons from 1:30 to 4 p.m. throughout the winter in Suite #9 of the Thorndike Building at 385 Main St.

Drawing from life is widely accepted as the foundation of fine art training. These sessions, open to adult artists, follow a long-pose format suitable for both figure and portrait work. A different model each week will variously be clothed, draped, costumed or nude. There is no instruction given.

Artists are free to use their choice of medium and bring their own supplies. (Turpentine is not allowed.)

Drop-ins will be allowed on a space-available basis, but subscribers are assured a spot and also save money. To prevent crowding, the number of subscriptions is limited to a dozen, and are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration is open now for the first six-week series, Jan. 19 through Feb. 23.

KCAS will also offer a range of instructional classes and workshops open to the public beginning March 22. KCAS is a membership organization open to all artists. Members receive advance program announcements and discounts. For more information, contact David Blanchard at or 691-6623.
