Leonardo DiCaprio made it look easy when he painted Kate Winslets character in the buff on the doomed cruise ship the Titanic. But in real life, unless the setting is as intimate as theirs, things can get awkward when one person is nude and the other is gawking, fully dressed. Fluorescent lights, the physical reaction that occurs when air conditioning mixes with exposed nipples, and your wandering eye are obstacles youll have to conquer at MoCA's Arts for All: Figure Drawing Class. This series of adult classes is designed to teach you about contemporary art. And how better to begin than by attempting to draw the human form? Note: Try not to let your eyes get caught locked into the wrong crevice for too long. Follow-up note: Let your eyes feast on the muse while your creative side places the visual on the page. No previous art experience is necessary. The class runs from 7 to 9 p.m. and costs $10 per session for MoCA Members, North Miami Residents, and city employees; $12 for others.
