Henrie, who organizes the Comox drawing group, possibly the longest running drawing group in the valley, has forwarded info on upcoming fall sessions. It's small studio that will only accomodate about 9 persons plus model, so it's not open drawing. However, Henrie says that there are openings on the Wednesday evening sessions, and some opportunities for Thursday during the day.

Hi fellow artists,
Welcome back to those who are able to return to the Comox Valley Lifedrawing Group.
I've come up with, I think, as fair a solution to some of the issues encountered last term. The idea for me was to come up with a way to ensure that a good number of artists attend regularly and that we could always cover $50 per week for our model. We need to cover the added expense of heating the studio for the models and I am including one hour per week to cover the time that I spend hiring the models and preparing the studio for the group.
The fee per 4 weeks is $39.50 x 3 months
Wednesdays: September 23 to December 9, 2009
7:15 - 9:30 pm (15 minute tea break)
Thursdays: September 17 to December 03, 2009
10:00 am - 12:30 pm (1/2 hour tea break)
I'm hoping that most members can pay the whole amount September 17 and if necessary I could do two equal payments of $59.25, a postdated cheque for October 22nd, 2009 could be given September 17, 2009. That way I won't have to take a lot of time checking and cross checking who has and has not paid.
For those who know they will be away some of the time, there will be a waitlist with names and phone numbers that I will email the group, so you can invite someone from that list. Their fee per week is $9.78 or if you want it to be an even $10.00, that is up to you. I'll have envelopes with your names on it for the payment to go into for your return. Please remind your replacement to ask about the envelope.
I will be paying the model with a pre-written cheque so members won't have to remember their cash every week, except for the person from the waitlist.
If you wish to continue as we did for snacks and tea (contributions from the members), that would be great.
See you soon,
