If I ever had to give advice to a first-time New Yorker, I would probably tell them to take advantage of every opportunity. Living in a huge city, you find that the opportunities are endless. A few days ago, our residence manager hosted a figure drawing class downstairs in the basement. Despite being an artist myself, I have never had the chance to participate in a full-blown figure drawing class. Shocking, I know. With that being said, I’ve never had the chance to sketch a naked women in the flesh either. Though, I’ll admit, I was a little uncomfortable for the first few poses, it felt so refreshing to sketch again.
