Life drawing – with a difference

Back to Spotlight

At Lighthouse we are always exploring fun new outlets for our creativity. Our regular life drawing sessions provide an opportunity for us to hone our observational skills, practice drawing proportions and catch up with our fellow crew members outside of regular studio hours.  

In the past we have had some interesting subjects for our life drawing sessions. A recent highlight was when we were joined by model Hinatea, a Tahitian dancer who wore her full dance outfit. Although the sessions take place online these days, they are just as engaging and fun as pre-Covid times.  

In June, we were delighted to be joined by a number of young students (aged 9-11 years) from St. Patrick’s De La Salle Boys National School. These fearless youngsters not only proved themselves to be the perfect models for our speed-drawing session, but also taught us a thing or two about superheroes along the way.  

Some of our models even decided to join in the drawing fun. Check out these great pics from Adam, Quim and TJ!

Our crew members were super impressed with how well each of our young models did in their mime exercises. Fabiola Berton, Background Artist, shared the below images with us from the session.

Huge thanks to Gemma Aloisi, Background Artist, Kevin Quigley, Skills and Development Coordinator, and Niamh McHugh, Facilities Manager for facilitating the session.

And of course a special thanks to all our models and their adult supervisors for making the session a roaring success!
