Longmont Figure Drawing MeetUp

Friday, April 5, 2019

540 Delaware Pl., Longmont
(just east of Boulder County Fairgrounds)

$20 per session for Longmont Artist Guild & TM members
$25 non-members
Presented by: Remington Bernot

To register:

My name is Remington, and I’m happy to announce what will hopefully be many figure drawing sessions at Tinkermill.

No critique or judgment,,, so don’t be shy.

This Meet-up will primarily be a drawing group, with some small exercises in the beginning 20 minutes. The exercise will be to help you let go of control, loosen up and not necessarily to draw a good "picture" at first. After that the model and I will simply collaborate on length and style of poses.

Please bring your own paper and drawing/painting tools. I will take some time in the beginning to direct easels to an appropriate place. I’ll have one double station easel provided for two painters, which is first come first serve. If you bring a drawing board however, I will have a large roll of paper you can use.

I’ll offer an option to receive more instruction and direction at the end of class by providing a sign-up sheet for an alternative style drawing session.

I look forward to seeing you there!

Since our LAG meeting is cancelled tonight, I’m going to give my presentation LIVE on FaceBook today at 4pm! This will happen on my Imagine Digital Art Solutions FB Page.

November President’s Message

As Thanksgiving approaches, we reflect on what we are thankful for.  Family and friends are usually on top, followed closely by health and prosperity.
My list also includes our LAG Board members who are so dedicated in keeping our guild running smoothly. It is hard to calculate all the volunteer hours the Board puts in however these hours have led to numerous accomplishments. LAG has a bigger and better newsletter, outstanding website and strong social media all thanks to the many, many hours Jill Rumley has devoted to our guild.  Thanks to our hard-working Board, LAG has more opportunities than ever to exhibit such as the Boulder County Fair show, the Strawberry Days, and the Longmont ArtWalk. Along with our monthly meeting guest artists the Board has added the mini shows (now called “Inspirations”), fun hands-on activities, and art swaps.
These are just a few of the things LAG has benefited from over the last couple of years thanks to our Board’s innovative ideas, time, and energy. As I reflect on what I am thankful for this Thanksgiving, I am definitely adding our wonderful LAG Board!

P.S. (from the LAG Board…) And we are so thankful for all of the behind-the-scenes hard work our President Susan puts in!

Susan Steven
LAG President
