A Model Performance

Members of Denton Art Group had an exciting time this week — for the first time they had been promised a “model” on which to practice their arts at their weekly session. But was it to be male or female — and how much would be revealed?

A record turn-out resulted; more than 15 members turned up at the Village Hall on Wednesday and were given the opportunity of sketching in charcoal, a new technique for many, guided by tutor Chris Bardsley. The model, who turned out to be male, struck four different poses for ten minutes each. He did very well to remain still for so long — without, alas, revealing too much.

However, all the members had a great time. The group are now taking a summer break but sessions will restart in September.
