Drawing from a living model is an activity that takes place in the Bovenzaal of the Haagse Kunstkring. No lessons are given, the group consists of (semi-) professional artists.
The fact that drawing in our digital era is viewed differently than in earlier times is a fact. In the second half of the last century, drawing a living model was slowly seen as no longer important, but in the current art scene, people are getting back into it. Loyalty artists continue to train their sense of proportion with real life studies. Artists’ eye-hand coordination is sharpened and works must be completed at speed because sittings last only 5 to 25 minutes.
This gives the draftsman the freedom that is also to abandon the result. It is also interesting to note that the illustrators of the model character groups now show their direct work, made on the spot. Model drawing is one of the many activities that take place at the Haagse Kunstkring.
The gallery is open: Wednesday to Saturday from 11 am to 5 pm and Sunday from 1 pm to 5 pm. Entrance is free.
