Life Drawing with Chickens

One of my favorite memories of art school was the first week, just after summer break. The Concourse Gallery at Emily Carr University was transformed to resemble a barn. Bales of hay and live critters were brought in as models and all drawing classes took place there. My favorite models were always the chickens.

So, I'm excited to announce, we've added chickens to the backyard at Studio-Kids. We have 5 beautiful girls practicing their poise and stomp, just waiting to be life drawing models! The January drawing class is now enrolling, class size is limited so register soon.

Peachy and Poof Daddy posing (don't worry neighbors, despite the name, Poof Daddy's a hen, or so BackyardChickens. com assures us)

The full gang, five models, ready to report for duty.

Poof Daddy, straight back, great form, and always keeping at least one eye on the artist.

2011 and 2012 Classes are Now Enrolling

 Its been a busy summer and fall around the studio, and winter is just around the corner. Check out my Class page for the new postings which are now enrolling.  I'm squeezing in a quick colorful class before Christmas.  We'll explore color theory by painting simple compositions in many different color combinations. Students will take home a lot of beautiful painting perfect for gift giving!

Green apples in water color, colored pencil and ink. I love the gestural qualities of this little still life.
