This exhibition brings together work from a group of amateur and professional artists who over the past 8 months have been honing their drawing skills at elysium gallery.

For hundreds of years, gatherings of art students have sat at their easels and drawing boards facing a dramatically lit nude model striking a heroically motionless pose for sometimes hours at a time.

Always a collective activity, life drawing is not just an important stage of learning to draw; life drawing sessions can become a meditative experience, a chance to shut out the outside world.

The work on display are snippets, fragments, exercises and experiments into exploring and drawing the human form.

Turning the Art in the Bar exhibition walls into a drawing atelier, the exhibition will be added to and change every life drawing session at the elysium gallery bar.
