Entry for March 23, 2013

On the Saturday I got over to the morning drawing session in the St Cyril & Methody church basement. I only recently noticed that the church is right across the road from the revitalised Regent Park developments,with a lot of arts groups and other community projects. The whole landscape of the city's smaller culture projects keeps moving east and west of centre.
The Toronto School of Art's restart is on the other side, right across the street from the Dufferin Subway station. Classes and some drawing sessions are slated to start beginning May 4. As it is, salvaged school equipment moves in this weekend. For the list of classes, or to sign up for 8-week Spring classes via Eventbrite, visit I'm offering four this spring - figure drawing and a perspective class.

These studies are all done with hard compressed Nobel charcoal. The top two and the bottom one are on 18 x 24" sheets of Canson Recycled Sketch paper, and the 2nd-last one is on a 22 x 30" sheet of 90 lb Maidstone rag paper. From the top, these are a 10-minute, a 15, a 20 and another 15-minute study.
