2 Hours, 2 models: Life Drawing Session at Artspace Th, May 26, 7 to 9 pm

The human form on canvas is an eternal supper. Own a nude and never go hungry, is what they say on the Rive Gauche. And where does the creation of this feast begin? With a model and an artist and a few brushes and, one imagines, some paint. Or it may begin with large slices of bread-like paper and a few coals retrieved from the eternal fire.

At any rate, the artists of this burg may go back to the roots of the business of art this week. Artspace offers a Life Drawing Session Thursday, from 7 to 9 pm.

"It's $7 for the 2 hour/2 model session," says Noma Fowler-Sandlin. "If you have questions, you can call me at 349-1568 or 673-6535. Bring your own supplies and turn off your cell phones." Then, the wry Noma adds, "Draw draw draw."

The nude above is by young artist Bethia Bundrick. See more of her work at NadersGallery.com. The instructor for Thursday's session is Kathy Brodnax, of the Meadows Museum staff. Brodnax is also a teacher of drawing at Centenary College.

Noma, my friend Berg just dropped by to say his friend Emily asked him this week about such a class. She's a painter and has attended life drawing sessions in Florida and elsewhere. Congrats on filling artistic need!
