City Light's Life Drawing Session with Bill Bon, instructor, is proving to be a real treat for those who attend. Bill is an accomplished artist in several media. His insights into drawing the human form are invaluable. Classes like this one are hard to find, especially at the price of $15 per three-hour session. The class meets at City Lights Art Gallery, 3 E. Army Street in Henderson from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm, the second Friday of each month. That's a half block east of Water Street, opposite the Rainbow Casino. Parking is available across the street or behind the building.
