Free ‘Life Drawing’ class offered in Ishpeming
Journal Staff Writer
ISHPEMING — Ishpeming Carnegie Public Library will once again hold its free Life Drawing class on Saturday mornings at 11 a.m. from Feb. 4 to March 11.
The last time this drawing class was held was in early 2020 since being canceled in 2021 and 2022 due to COVID-19 restrictions.
“Life drawing is the practice of drawing people and objects from observation,” said Paul Olson, the class instructor. “The tools of life drawing are typically very simple — just drawing pencils or charcoal and newsprint paper. Last year we had kids as young as 12 and senior citizens in the class. Because of its simplicity, this is a very accessible form of art.”
Basic drawing materials are provided, but students are welcome to bring their own. This is a drop-in class–there is no registration. No experience is necessary. All models for the class will be volunteers from the community.
