Starting

January 15, 2019

we are invited for 10 weeks of drawing horses & riders from life courtesy of Toronto Police Service's Mounted Unit.

Warning; the first week can be overwhelming, even for the experienced. The horses + riders do not do 20 minute sustained poses.

But, poses repeat and repeat as Toronto's Mounted Unit goes through its training paces while moving in all directions

Over repeated weeks with the same group of models you will learn to Look, See and Draw, horses from life.

Just Horses is limited to 8 participants.

NO cameras!
