Life Drawing at Jankura Art Space

Printer-friendly version
On the way to Jankura Art Space, in Itaewon, you can enjoy walking past many antique shops. Some of which look like hold actual antiques while others just seem like old furniture stores.

Jankura Art Space is the shared studio space from the artist Mike Stewart. Before it was the "Big Green Studio", but now he has a cozy space down a street in Itaewon. This lovely space offers life drawing and other art courses that one can take for a small fee. Also there is studio space, which can be rented out. I think currently the spaces are full.

I came on a Saturday for two sessions, the first being a clothed model and the second nude. I had a lot of fun at both and it was good to exercise my artistic muscle. Here are some shots of the work I produced, sorry for them being so shadowy.

When the model did a standing pose I had some trouble fitting the whole figure on the page, so I ended up just focusing on the shoes.

The nude model was enjoyable to draw and we had a lot of quick poses at first and then several longer poses towards the end.

Since getting to Itaewon isn't much trouble for me, I can imagine going back when I feel the need to get some life drawing done. I hope Mike uses the location as an opportunity for outdoor drawing when the weather warms up. ;)

Otherwise, if your interested sessions are typically every other Saturday from 6 - 8pm, and there are sessions on Sunday as well. Check out the website...
