Life Drawing Workshop with Anne Shields Hopkins
October 9, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Wednesday, repeating until November 6, 2019
Eastport Arts Center’s weekly Life Drawing Workshop will resume Wednesday, September 18 at 7 pm, and will meet weekly from 7-9 pm Wednesdays through November 6. The group, which will work from a live model, will be led by Anne Shields Hopkins, a frequent participant in past sessions of the workshop. Hopkins was raised in the salty North Atlantic and was trained at the Pratt Institute. They are a maker, mother, organizer and fire builder, and have become known for bringing a flair for dramatic play to the weekly community art gatherings. Participants, who may work in any medium of their choice, should expect movement, openings, quiet moments and excitement in the workshop’s self-guided 2 hours of creation. Participation fee will be $10/session, or $60 for the full 8 weeks.
Workshop Seeking Models
Models/performers are sought to pose for EAC’s Life Drawing Workshop. Each drawing session begins with a series of short poses, ending with an hour-long pose. Those interested in modeling need no previous experience, as the workshop facilitator will discuss with them what is needed in advance of the drawing session, and there is a generous fee for the two hours of modeling. Also, photography of the models is not permitted.
Those interested in modeling, or seeking more information about the drawing workshop should email Hopkins at firstname.lastname@example.org. Eastport Arts Center is at 36 Washington Street, Eastport, and at www.eastportartscenter.org, and is fully handicapped-accessible.
