Did you know life drawing has multiple benefits to your wellbeing?
According to Heddi Siebel, who teaches a life drawing class at Harvard:
“It’s so vital and important for one human to be studying, looking, and perceiving another human because it eventually creates empathy. You’ll start to understand your own vulnerabilities by studying those of the model.”
Who knew! Life drawing can make you more perceptive in many areas of your work and life, it trains your eye to see things that photographs aren’t able to capture.
There is something very liberating and peaceful about life drawing. The 90 minute class allows you to know when you’re done and it’s not a problem if you didn’t finish. It’s all about the process, and there is another pose coming.
