(MAQUOKETA, IA) Maquoketa Art Experience announces the return of the weekly Sunday Drawing Sessions scheduled for February 6-May 1, 2011.

Beginning February 6, 2011 Maquoketa Art Experience will host a drawing session every Sunday afternoon from 1-4 p.m. at Maquoketa Art Experience, 124 S. Main Street in Maquoketa. Drawing sessions are open to artists of all skill levels. There is no instruction for these classes, rather, a growing community of artists working alongside each other. Each Sunday session, hosted by artist Evanny Henningson, features a live clothed model that holds poses of varying length. Sessions will start with several quick sketches of poses that last for just a few minutes and gradually increase minutes until we reach a final full hour pose.

Artists of all levels are invited to drop in for the sessions. Sessions cost $8 at the door or you can purchase a 10-session punch card for $60. Punch cards can be purchased at the beginning of the session, by stopping in to Maquoketa Art Experience, or by mailing a check to: MAE, PO Box 993, Maquoketa, IA 52060 and they will mail you a punch card.

Easels & drawing horses are provided. Bring your own pencils, sketch pads, and other materials that you prefer to draw with. Register by calling Maquoketa Art Experience at 563.652.9925 or just drop in.

Maquoketa Art Experience is dedicated to bringing accomplished artists to Maquoketa for short- and long-term residencies, workshops, and exhibitions.
