Artists drawn to opportunity

THERE was not a spare seat in the studio for the Warwick Artists Group's first life drawing class on Saturday.

Organiser Sue Keong said Saturday's class was the first of six.

"There are artists of varying experience here," she said.

"Some have done it before, some never and some are coming back to it after a break.

"It is a rare opportunity to have a life model.

"The RADF grant has helped to make this class happen.

"It is very popular."

So popular in fact that the six-week class is booked out.

Artist Sue Whitton, who has been drawing on and off for 15 years, said she enjoyed the first class.

"I really enjoy drawing," she said.

"This is a chance to be able to observe the human body and work on the curves and lines of a body."

Mrs Keong said an exhibition to display the work of the artists during the course was a possibility and if there was enough interest, another block of classes would be held.
