Last night, I attended an arts event that was a unique and interesting twist on figure drawing classes, wherein artists come in and sketch a (typically nude) model.  This sketch class; however, hosted by Arts Unlimited of Renton, had actors from the 425 Theatre Project as models.  Last night’s theme was the 1920s and the models/actors offered both still poses and ‘action’ poses, where the actors would begin playing a scene and, at any point, someone in the audience could yell, “Freeze!”, and the actors would stop and hold whatever pose they were in.  They held some very difficult poses for quite a long time.  Not an easy job to be a model!

It was a very casual atmosphere, which was great.  Everyone felt comfortable getting up and moving around, taking photographs, and having a little wine and dinner as they sketched.  Very nice group of people.
