Last night I attended the monthly "Drawing at the Rooster" event in Ottawa at the Atomic Rooster on Bank St. This open and free event is hosted every month by two Ottawa area artists, Peter Purdy and Rebecca Gilman.
The evening started a bit late and there were three models for the evening. Each model held poses for two, three, five, ten and twenty minutes in duration."Drawing at the Rooster is a monthly life drawing event. There are multiple live models (clothed/costumed) that will do a variety of short and long poses.
Each event has a different theme! Drawing at the Rooster is a no cover event, and is a creative, non-judgmental environment where artists of all skill levels will have an opportunity to practice their life drawing skills. (Source: DATR facebook)
