Tryon Painters & Sculptors is excited to announce a six-week figure drawing session that begins Monday, Oct. 23 and runs through Nov. 27. The group meets on Mondays from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the TP&S drawing studio at 78 N. Trade St. in Tryon.

Pat Cole-Ferullo will be the instructor for the first three weeks of the session. The focus of the group will be life drawing and there will be a live model. In the first sessions students will be working with a draped model. Artists at all levels including beginners are invited to attend. We are a very welcomingly group and are seeking new members who enjoy the challenge of drawing a live model. There is a charge for the six-class session.

Cole-Ferullo is excited about teaching life drawing to our group. She taught for many years with Jeanne Parker at the Tryon Fine Arts Center. She began studying art in high school, which led to a BA in fine art and commercial art from Florida State University.
