Twice a month for most of the year I have figure drawing sessions with a nude model. These are held Saturday mornings from nine to noon at a local community centre in a lovely room with excellent lighting. The sessions are not classes, but a chance for artists at any stage of their development to practice. The format is half an hour of gesture poses, and then one long pose for painting or studies.
Children and adults alike seem to enjoy the readings I do of my books. I like to tell the story -- the one in the book -- the back story -- what I learned in my research -- and the back-back story -- how and why I did the illustrations the way I did.
