Why did you join the goup?

I have recently started drawing again, and I am interested in attending Drawing sessions in order to help me grow as an artist. I have also become interested in modeling again, something I have limited experience in. Now that I am older, I would like to further explore that part of the creative process. I feel a strong need to be with other artists, to learn and grow and share ideas in a creative, non-judgmental atmosphere.

What kind of art do you make, or want to make?

I am mostly making pencil sketches for now, trying to hone my rusty skills. Also doing some oil pastels and digital photograph manipulation.

What experience in the arts, or training in the arts, do you have (none is required at all)?

I have been drawing since I was a child. I have taken many Art classes throughout my school years, into my college years. In my early adulthood I was part of a circle of good friends, some artistically inclined while some not so much, but all very open and creative and willing to try new things! We would often have drawing and painting sessions, take turns modeling, exchange ideas, do and discuss Art into the wee hours of the morning. That is by far the best experience I have had in the Arts.


Hi! My name is Richard. I have always been an artist. I drifted away from it a few years ago, but am now feeling a strong desire to return to it. Currently I work at a Library, a job that I love. Prior to that I worked 26 yrs as a Mental Health Tech.

What Richard is saying about this Meetup Group

Great Group to be a member of!
