Recently I've been attending the Los Feliz Figure Drawing Workshop in Los Feliz right off of Kingswell and Hillhurst. Here's the link. It's such a refreshing thing to do as I haven't drawn from life since I graduated CCS in the Spring! I was a bit rusty but got back into it pretty quickly! I really love drawing from the figure, its extremely relaxing and there are no deadlines! I plan on attending as much as I can. For those of you in Los Angeles that haven't been there yet, check it out. Here is some info from their website:
"We are hosting lifedrawing and painting workshops Monday and Thursday evenings from 7 to 10 pm. Both evenings are twenty-five minute poses for uninstructed drawing. We are located at 4451 Kingswell Ave, at the Northeast corner of Kingswell and Hillhurst in the heart of Los Feliz Village. There's a long driveway and we're all the way at the back, through a little courtyard to a burgundy door. The donation is fifteen dollars per session on a pay as you go basis."
