Hand-to Eye coordination

After graduating from the New York Academy of Art, I found myself really missing drawing and painting from the live model. The hand-to-eye coordination is an essential skill that must be kept up with as an artist, especially with complex subjects like the human figure. After doing some research to see what’s around me, I found The Ridgewood Art Institute located in Ridgewood, New Jersey. They offer Life model sessions (Without instruction) Monday Evenings, 7:30pm - 10:30pm. The model fee is $10 for members and $20 for non-members.

Here are some  5min, 10min, and 20 min poses done from life at the Ridgewood Art Institute.

Michelangelo wrote in one of his many sketchbooks: “there is no greater harm than that of time wasted. Draw Antonio, draw Anttonio, draw and do not waste time.”
