I am very excited to share this video of our life drawing group: Simply Drawing!
It was done by a North Vancouver based videographer: Peter Hunt and it shows footage of the class as well as the opening of our annual exhibition last week.

The 3 co-founder of the group (Anna du Bois, Michael Gordon and I) are talking about the group, how sessions are set up and life drawing in general.

The group will take a break for summer but we will be back in September. Subscribe to our mailing list on the website if you want to be updated on our news and events.
