So, you’ve always wanted to learn figure drawing? Let’s get started.

Do you often think about coming to PAAM’s Life Drawing sessions, but stop because you don’t feel ready or inspired? This workshop is designed for you. We will go through a series of exercises designed to loosen your hand and train your eye to see the human form in a whole new way. There will be a mini art history lecture, two hours with a model and an optional peer review at the close of the workshop. Students will leave with a renewed ability to draw and a greater sense of self as an artist.

Laura Shabott is a true Provincetown artist; multi-faceted and actively engaged in the arts colony. Her ODE TO HOFMANN series of ten paintings are works of the same still life arrangement created over many months, a classic assignment from the master teacher/artist to his students. She considers figure drawing the foundation of her studio practice and attends the Chester I. Solomon Life Drawing at PAAM.

Shabott is the recipient of a Romano Rizk Scholarship from the LOWF Museum School and a Cape Resident Scholarship recipient with a Returning Residency from the Fine Arts Work Center. A graduate of School of the Museum of Fine Arts (SMFA), Boston at Tufts, she shows with Four Eleven Gallery in Provincetown.
