Lumby links to the arts with new classes, website

The Monashee Arts Council continues to offer workshops and classes for those wanting to explore the arts in Lumby and area.

Instruction in painting in oils, mask making, fabric art, and woodworking have already begun or are still being offered along with the latest class in life drawing.

In the latter course, students will focus on drawing the human figure, and in particular, portrait drawing.

Set in the relaxed atmosphere of a Lumby coffee house, the Life Drawing and Cappuccino course is open for everyone from teens to seniors, beginners to advanced artists.

Local artist and instructor Robin Le Drew will work with participants using concepts from “drawing from the right side.” Participants are asked to bring along a sketchbook and pencils/charcoal, however, supplies will be on hand for those who need them.

Classes will be held at Caffé Mazzega in Lumby on Wednesdays from 3 to 5 p.m. for a total of five sessions (Feb. 27, March 6, 13, 20 and 27.)

Enrolment is limited to six students.
