This opportunity for all artists is being facilitated by the Huntsville Art Society.  In response to considerable interest from the artist community this opportunity being offered again here in Huntsville.

Life sketches are a consistently rewarding artistic expression, because there is so much to take in. Every time a model makes a move, there’s something to glean and work on—shadows and gesture, to skin texture and how the limbs extend. Every pose reveals a whole new avenue of artistic pursuit.

Bring your easel and join the group!

 A Documented Presentation by Wendy Oke of the


 Alma Rumball’s family pioneered in Muskoka, Ontario, in the 1870’s, where she lived most of her life.
Following a vision of Jesus, she became a clairvoyant recluse, at age 50, creating prolific, intricate, coloured pen and ink drawings, born of a rich inner life. She watched, as “The Hand” drew by itself, unfamiliar forms, faces, characters, separate from her consciousness. Tibetan gods, Joan of Arc figures and tales of Atlantis revealed themselves.
As a Christian, she never claimed credit, nor understanding.
She said she didn’t do them – “The Hand” did.
They have been called “the Sacred Language of Light, activation drawings, with codes embedded in them for the evolution of humanity at this time.” These energies may be accessed through meditation.
Tibetan gods have been identified in her work, by the spiritual advisor to the Dalai Lama, Kalu Rinpoche.


Prints, cards and wearable art
