Ballet rehearsal - special drawing session (duo)

Details

Join us for a life drawing session inspired by a 19th century ballet school. Posing for us in a duo and on their own are two excellent models! You will draw a young ballerina, Florence, who will play a student of the Paris Opera Dance School and Faustine, her working class mom. It’s going to be another drawing session inspired by Degas, who took a great interest in young ballerinas from disadvantaged classes supporting their poor families with dancing and, as some believe, sexual favours to wealthy ballet subscribers! Please note that the drawing session’s duration has been exceptionally extended to a 3h workshop. Please bring whatever art materials you're comfortable with. Below is a detailed schedule for the session:

3 poses x 5 minutes
1 pose x 10 minutes
