Professor Gadek, will open That’s Life!, an exhibition celebrating 16 years of life drawing classes at JCU, on Friday, August 17 at 4.30pm at the Cairns JCU Library. The exhibition of work by artists who have attended the classes runs from August 13 to September 23.
Life Drawing Co-Ordinator Margaret Genever said the Life Drawing workshop was established primarily to cater to the needs of JCU visual arts students, but also engaged with local artists. “The workshop is often visited by artists from around the world and other parts of Australia, and there are over 100 artists on the current life drawing email list,” she said. “The drawings in the exhibition represent a small fraction of the number of artists who have attended over the years. The works are in a wide range of mediums, starting with the not so humble pencil.”
The Life Drawing at JCU Cairns Open Workshop is at the School of Creative Arts, Building A4, Room 026/027, Tuesdays 6.30-9pm, and the second Sunday each month 9am-4pm (single pose day). All welcome, no need to book.
Workshops include model, music, easels and boards, drawing discussion and reviews. Please bring your own drawing or painting materials, paper and clips. Fee $10 Tuesdays, $15 if fewer than five people, and $35 for Sundays.
