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.
