Life Drawing: Michele Hoffman Lino

The Charlotte Art League offers figure drawing sessions for members and non-members alike.

Our classroom atmosphere is relaxed with no instruction. Most classes feature a live nude figure model, with costumed models or portrait sessions on occasion.

The class usually warms up with a set of 5-minute and 10-minute poses before beginning the 20-minute poses. The 20-minute poses are extended if the students are interested.

Where: 1517 Camden Road, in the Art League Gallery

When: Most Saturdays, 8:00-10:00 a.m.

Class fees: $10 (this goes toward the model fee and facilities costs). Pre-registration is not necessary — simply register at your first session and sign in at every session thereafter. Sign-in will include name, e-mail, and phone number.

About Janet

Janet Hunter Talmage spent her “first” career as an architect, but in retirement returned to her first love — art. Her childhood love for art, perspective and design led her to a B.S. in Architecture from the University of Texas at Arlington in 1979. For the next several decades, Janet worked for architectural firms while raising three sons with her husband, Gary. In 2000, she enrolled in art classes and taught architectural and interior design classes at Central Piedmont and a community college in Kansas. In 2011 she received a B.A. in Art from UNCC.
