Let it be known that I'm a very reserved woman - and some would say borderline prude - but I definitely broke that mold today! I spent the day in a life drawing course offered by the Pontiac School of the Arts.
When I took the pastel course back in August, the instructor suggested that I also take an upcoming drawing workshop. It was originally a three-day event, but because of some organizational glitches, it was pared down to one. I still took away so much from the course.
I think what I learned most was abandon. I know that seems like an absurd thing to learn, but sometimes we get so wound up over ourselves that we don't just let loose and go with the flow. When I looked around at the class to see if anyone else was flustered over the naked man before us, and everyone else was engaged in their own drawings, so I had to abandon my hang-ups and move along too.
Who would have thought that the most important thing I'd learn at a drawing class wouldn't be drawing?
