I am involved with a small group of artists who meet on a weekly basis for life drawing and painting in the Drury/Pukekohe area south of Auckland. There are normally around 6 of us – and we meet on Tuesdays from 10.30 – 1.00pm. I’m not too sure where you live but guess that we would be a bit of a trek for you. We would be happy to help with petrol costs if that was an issue. You can see some of my work on www.davidquinlan.vc.net.nz
Let me know how you would feel about coming to us from time to time, your fee and availability on Tuesdays after Easter.
