Life drawing adds flesh to society bones
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.
