Rooms of The Drawing Room

The Drawing Room (the drawing club I’m a part of) spent a few weeks focusing on perspective drawing.   The following two drawings weren’t so fun for me to make, but perspective is important to brush up on every once and a while. I’m told musicians, no matter how skilled, should practice basic scales when possible. Consider these spacial drawings my scales.

Kimberly Townsend

Every week, I organize The Hammonton Art Center‘s Think Thursday event. From 5-9pm there is a kids’ craft, an artists’ activity, and live music. Everyone is welcome to stop in, and now that you know about it I hope to see you there.

Each week I give the musicians portraits I draw of them as they play. Part of me wishes I archived these drawings. The rest of me is very happy that I exchange an evening of my art for an evening of theirs. It is a dream come true to be able to provide a place where the visual and performing arts come together.

Last night, The Hammonton Art Center was lucky enough to have the thought provoking Kimberly Townsend perform. She agreed to allow the whole Figure Drawing club set up easels and draw her as she played. As it was a night dedicated to life drawing, I was able to keep a few of the sketches. Most of my better drawings went to her. Below are the drawings that did not.

As always, click on images to enlarge them.

Time Flies

It seems like only yesterday that I told you about the Noyes Museum‘s weekly drawing club. Well, the Drawing Room is now over a month old. Starting in June we will be experimenting with persepctive and interior space. Feel free to join us on Wednesday nights. Below are select drawings from my most recent three sessions.

On a side note, a lot of people have been asking about my Facebook project. I have not given up! Spring and summer are my busy seasons. I promise to pick back up right where I left off come fall.

The Drawing Room

The Drawing Room is a drawing club that meets at the Noyes Museum on Wednesday nights. There have only been two sessions to date, both focusing on still life and basic drawing refresher exercises. I love where our little group of artists is going and am looking forward to posting more drawings from our meetings.
