On the other hand, the best remedy Ive heard of for solving the many vagaries of life drawing can be experienced tonight during Body Worlds Sketch Night at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, where from 6 to 9:30 p.m., artists can bring their sketchbooks and have at it in the best of conditions, free of crowds and offering the best models ever: the dead, plastinated ones featured in the current Body Worlds exhibit. Its a unique opportunity for artists, because it really shows anatomy, notes the museums Heather Hope. Youre literally looking under the skin at the true structure of the musculature.
Admission to Sketch Night ranges from $16 to $25, but the return is priceless; get information and reservations at www.dmns.org or call 303-322-7009. The museum is at 2001 Colorado Boulevard.
