Belfast — Life Drawing groups are starting up again at Waterfall Arts, 256 High St. The long-running groups, which are non-instructional, meet on Tuesday nights and Saturday mornings. The Saturday morning group, meeting from 9:30 a.m. to noon, begins Sept. 14 to run for 13 weeks, through Dec. 7. The Saturday group focuses on long poses, with the model only changing his or her pose once or twice during the session. Those attending bring their own materials. The cost of each Saturday session is $15 to drop in; prepayment of $60 allows attendance on six Saturdays with additional discounts available. To ensure the group will run, a minimum of 10 prepayments is needed.
The Tuesday Life Drawing group, held from 6:30 to 9 p.m., begins Sept. 24 and runs for eight weeks, through Nov. 5. The focus is on short, timed and varied poses. The pricing is the same as for the Saturday group. To ensure this group will run, a minimum of five prepayments is needed.

The class, for ages 6 to 16, runs for 10 weeks on Wednesdays from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m., Sept. 18 through Nov. 20.
