Dear Friends of the Arts,

LIVING PROOF, Sketches from Life - Currently on view Online and in the Gallery until Saturday December 20th with essential sketches of gesture, figures, clothing, expression, body language and more...

This month’s featured Artists are the explorer spirits of our Life Drawing workshop. With over 30 years of combined experience in portrait drawing, these courageous artists are allowing their work-in-progress to be viewed unaltered and unfinished.

We have fresh new Art Greeting Cards from Gallery Artists just in time for the Holiday Season.

After December, the onLocation Gallery will be closed from January thru April 2015. 'Gallery Beyond Walls' our Online Gallery remains open to view and shop.

Life Drawing workshops are taking a break in December and will resume Monday January 18th, 2015.

"...I would like to express my most sincere appreciation to all the Artists, Visitors and Volunteers, who are working so hard every day to explore our World and share in the creation of inspiring works. The compassionate and creative spirit of these Individuals who have a belief that an exploratory spirit which shines through artistic endeavors exists in each of us. Thank you so much and let’s keep working together supporting our partners in community in 2015."

We hope you will come to visit us often and that you keep your creative spirit shining....... "Best wishes from all of us at DRAW..." Astrid Johnston

LIVING PROOF, Sketches from Life Meet & Greet with Artists & Models, Friday Dec 12th, 6-8pm

This month’s featured Artists Cynthia Bonesky, Colleen Clancy, Christopher Finlayson, Lily Finlayson, Jillian Mayne, Graham McDonald, Ann McIvor and Tamas Zalatnai are the explorer spirits of our 2014 Life Drawing workshop.

Life Drawing is about viewing the human form through the raw emotion of your own gestures. It's all about capturing the spirit within. Whether it's the opportunity of seizing a spectacular moment in time or the thrill of catching an emotion at its best. In one brief second, we have the opportunity to experience that moment, the excitement is sharing that with you."
