As part of the effort of
Logan County Arts to educate the public and create awareness of all types of
visual arts in the community, there will be an artist's talk and critique at
7 p.m., Monday, May 12, at the Salvation Army Keest Center, 307 N. Kickapoo
Brian K Simpson, life drawing instructor
at the McLean County Arts Center, Bloomington, will present a talk,
"Discussing Techniques of Life Drawing."
Simpson will show several of his own
drawings and discuss them, critique LCA members' drawings as well as
those of the general public, and give tips and techniques to help
improve figure drawings.
Simpson left the academic world in
1984 after completing his graduate exhibition in photography at
Illinois State University, then spent the next 20 years exploring
life drawing while making a living as a bookseller — he owns and
operates Babbit's Books in Normal. He has been affiliated with the
McLean County Arts Center for a number of years.
Admission will be charged at the
door. People attending are asked to bring a few of their drawings to
share with Simpson.
