Draw The Universe Within At The Saskatchewan Science Centre

The Art Gallery Of Regina has put together a figure drawing session for artists who’d like to draw the plasticized bodies in the touring exhibit Our Bodies: The Universe Within. It sounds interesting. From the press release:

Learning anatomy is one of the fundamentals of figure drawing. This unique session, co-sponsored by the Saskatchewan Science Centre, offers artists a once- in-a-lifetime opportunity to study the musculoskeletal system as it has never been seen before. Participants will spend three hours independently drawing the preserved models at the Saskatchewan Science Centre on display in the Our Body: The Universe Within exhibition. This facilitated session will take place after hours when the museum is closed to the public.

The workshop will be facilitated by Ward Schell and costs $60. No cameras, and pencil, pen and other non-messy drawing implements only. For more information, e-mail the gallery here.

Carle wrote about the exhibit back in the spring. Remember when it was spring? Sigh. Our Bodies has been extended through January, by the way. January is in winter. Sigh again.

  1. Greg wrote about it too — twice! Here is a link to the blog post he did: http://www.prairiedogmag.com/?p=3724

    He goofed up the link to the news item, though, so it might be lost.

    At any rate, I also wanted to point out that Ward Schell is our go to artist at the Saskatchewan Science Centre. We have several rooms full of his really beautiful murals. I generally think most murals are kinda yuck, especially nature-themed and realistic ones (I prefer my art to be a little more wacky and experimental), but I really enjoy what he does around here. I’m not sure if we approached him or he approached us about this session, but I was pleased as punch to see him involved with this!

    Also, winter. Why did you have to bring that up? Sigh indeed.
