Every couple of weeks at the Khyber Institute of Contemporary Arts there is an event called Draw Nudes with Local Dudes. I was taken once by a friend and now I try and go as much as possible. For five dollars you get three hours of drawing, awesome music and three dollar beers. The guy this week did some incredible poses. It was harder but a lot more interesting.
I am only starting out but it is a great time and a great place to learn. At the beginning of the summer I bought a sketchbook and pastels, and this is the perfect place to put them to use. I put a few more below the cut because of the partial nudity (just bums, but I don’t want to offend anyone).
If you are in the Halifax area it is a great time, I highly recommend it.
