Life draw­ing adds flesh to so­ci­ety bones

Ovens & Murray Advertiser - - PROFESSIONAL SERVICES -

LIFE draw­ing ses­sions recom­menced last week at May­day Hills Art So­ci­ety’s rooms at May­day Hills Vil­lage with 10 artists tak­ing up the op­por­tu­nity.

They agreed that draw­ing the hu­man fig­ure from life was the best way to hone draw­ing skills.

Peo­ple from all skill levels – from begin­ners to ac­com­plished artists – booked in and a va­ri­ety of ex­pe­ri­enced mod­els are be­ing em­ployed.

“May­day Hills is be­com­ing a vi­brant hub and meet­ing place for the arts, es­pe­cially in the warm, spa­cious and com­fort­able ‘MADAS Theatrette’,” said so­ci­ety co­or­di­na­tor Chris­tine Cans­field-Smith.

The so­ci­ety will cel­e­brate its of­fi­cial launch by host­ing a mem­bers’ art ex­hi­bi­tion in the newly-ap­pointed Gre­vil­lea Gallery from Novem­ber 23 to De­cem­ber 3.

It will be open 10am-4pm daily and will co­in­cide with the sesqui-cen­te­nary of May­day Hills’ foun­da­tion as a lu­natic asy­lum and men­tal hospi­tal.

The hospi­tal closed in 1995.
