In other words, relating your art to everything around us. “Art is Life!” That’s why Robbie prefers to call this class (which includes snacks, beverages, and world 
    music), “DRAWING LIFE.”

    “The art of life drawing is more than just technique, anatomy, proportions and all that. It’s a way of understanding the character of another human being through relational perception. Learning to analyze and appreciate the natural rhythms of each model’s personal body type & language. Developing your hand, eye and empathy coordination by fine-tuning your millions of empathic mirror neurons to feel yourself into each pose. Becoming good at life drawing is like being an athlete in training: learning to exercise your muscles of observation, building up the stamina to concentrate totally on your subject. It requires staying in “the zone” long enough to put body and soul—your model’s and your own—into a drawing. Using whatever drawing materials you choose to employ, from a simple pencil to a multi-media extravaganza, we’ll teach them all, and enjoy every minute!”
