want to make this a fun day as well so I am asking everyone to bring some yummy warm winter food to share sort of like a an art party/drawing session.
This is on a long weekend .Let me know if everyone is ok with that, as we may need to change it?

Life Drawing

Well what a lovely cosy night we had tonight !
We used the little room out the back of the centre to draw in tonight .Was so warm and cosy .Our model Margaret ,did an absolutely fabulous job .Thanks Marg.
For a first timer,she was a natural.
We used inks with some interesting results .Some not very good ones by me as I haven't used inks to draw with for eleven years.Was fun though .
Georga ,Catherine and Nikki did very well.
I don't have photos tonight as we were packing up and cleaning up an ink spill (not mentioning anyones names )lol.
Am definitely glad I was at class rather than watching the footy !

Censorship in art

Just recently we had our ad on Gumtree Classifieds taken off the website for inappropriate images .The images that were in there were our charcoal drawings and our flyer .I find there actions inappropriate and small minded !Not the words I used at the time though !We live in the year 2011.We have disgusting images being shown on our television and beautiful images of the human figure are classed as inappropriate !
Let me know your opinions on this matter .
