Art department hosts life-drawing sessions

Artists and beginners are invited to participate in a life-drawing studio at the Korver Visual Arts Center at Northwestern College on Thursday evenings, Oct. 10 and 24.

The drawing studio, with a clothed model, will be open from 7 to 9 p.m. "The atmosphere is welcoming," said Emily Stokes, Northwestern art professor. "It's an opportunity for established artists to draw a live model, and inspire each other. And it's a place where beginners can learn in a non-threatening environment."

Bring charcoal, pencil or your favorite drawing medium. All are welcome to drop in for the entire two hours, or a shorter amount of time.

The life drawing sessions are sponsored by Northwestern College’s art department and the Orange City Arts Council, and are scheduled to continue through December, on alternate Thursdays. For more information, email
