Dynamic Drawing Draws Record Crowds

Artist Ron Curran has facilitated Dynamic Drawing classes to thousands of people in Byron Shire for the past ten years and has just returned from a successful two year stint in Melbourne.

‘We set up at the popular Brunswick Street Gallery in the heart of Fitzroy, the art hub of Melbourne,’ he told The Echo. ‘Dynamic Drawing was received enthusiastically and soon established a large grass roots base of drawers which soon grew to three full classes a week. Before long the classes, groups and workshops developed the largest base of drawers of anywhere in Melbourne.’

A group exhibition was also held at the gallery, according to Ron, representing works by over 60 artists from both Melbourne and Byron Bay, with over 200 works hung.

While Melbourne has a fantastic arts community and gave Dynamic Drawing a great profile, Ron says it’s the north coast and its unique and vibrant community that has called him back home.  ‘I want bring that wave of energy and inspiration from Melbourne back on board into the classes here.’

Dynamic Drawing classes have now reopened again with drawing sessions at the Mullumbimby Drill Hall Theatre, Dalley St on Wednesdays and at the Byron Bay Scout Hall, Tennyson Street on Fridays. Both classes are from 9.30am to 12noon. Drawing sessions are fully facilitated and include a model, music and refreshments. Call or email Ron to book on 0421 101 220 or Photo supplied.
