TEN models will pose nude in the open air for artists at Yewbarrow House, Grange-over-Sands, as part of a National Garden Scheme event.

The male and female models will pose for a life drawing class held by Alan Ward, who is a well-known member of the Royal Academy of Sculpture.

The event, on July 5, will also feature a life-size nude sculpted by Mr Ward.

The event will continue on July 6 when 15 artists in the gardens of Yewbarrow House will be painting, drawing, sculpting and weaving as the band N’Dodo provide the musical entertainment.
