First day of the second week of art class. I’m taking life drawing and anatomy with James McElhinney and it’s simpler than it sounds. We (kind of a rag-tag bunch of college and art school kids, 20-something struggling Brooklyn artists and theater designers, old (ish) folk who are retirees, foreigners (Japanese, Russian) and Real Life Artists who are full time league students) get in at around 8:45, set up an easel and coffee, and at 9 sharp our model comes in, takes off her clothes, and starts the set of two-minute poses that we warm up with. Our new model for the week is a beautiful woman with the body of a greek goddess.
Well, I’ve got to rise at six, so good night.
