Quick update before a big weekend

Greetings all, just a quick update as to our model on Monday, which is Aya!

And if any of you are around the UWA Nedlands campus over the weekend (you know, the place where we do our drawing), then stop on by The ALVA Hub to see this year’s 24 Hour Comic Day Perth event happening. It’s my sixth or so year running it (ninth taking part), so I’m sure I’ll be asleep for most of the drawing session on Monday. 

Have a good weekend everyone!

A model update and a session on a holiday

Greetings all,

Tomorrow night (the 21st), we’ll be having Victoria in for the evening.

The following week (the 28th) will be a holiday session, and Jules has been awesome enough to yes to running the session. For that night we’ll be having Amy in for the evening. Please not that there will be no coffee or tea on this night as Jules will not be able to access the urn which we use for this. My apologies to everybody for that. 

Cheerio!

A model update and a heck of a lot of news about town

Greetings all!

There is a lot of news to cover this week, so I will just quickly let everyone know that Nin will be our model for this coming Monday (the 14th) at UWA. The session may start a few minutes late to allow for him to make it over from work.

Next, it looks like my loyalty card idea is really taking off with two other groups having cards having systems of their own!

First is the Drawing School with Tracey, which is happening again tomorrow evening (the 13th) with the wonderful Martha as their model. Remember that through till the end of September (so the next two sessions) you can also get the card from my own sessions stamped. 

Secondly is Thursday nights at The Art Space Collective, which now have their own loyalty card (though I need to look into if this replaces the bring a friend and pay $5 less system that they had before). Through till the end of September, head on out and get yourself a stamp for my own group too at the same time. And you really should go as this coming Thursday they have the fabulous Hayley who is virtually unavailable anymore due to her allowing her work and life to take over her schedule of modelling. 

Combine these two with Sebastian’s Tuesday night group at Mt. Hawthorn which you can get stamps at up till the end of September, and those things really add up! Come on people, the seasons they are a changing so now is a good time to get out there! Don’t have a Monday night @ UWA card? Then come on out for a session and pick one up!

Speaking of Thursdays (well, two paragraphs back), Ray’s sessions at his studio in Craigie have moved from Thursday to Friday mornings 10-1. I’ll be updating the Thursday and Friday pages soon to reflect this, plus the fact he has a model coming in from over seas for a limited engagement.

And last but not least, one of our former models (who is dearly missed) and absolutely amazing portrait artist, Tess, is having a group exhibition opening soon. For a preview head to tessamconie.com.au. Details:

  • Opens: Friday 2nd October @ 6pm 
  • Exhibition runs from the 3rd Oct – 2nd Nov, 2015
  • Heathcote Museum & Gallery, 58 – 60 Duncraig Rd  Perth, WA

Man that was a lot. Get out there and keep drawing (naked) people!

A model update and a change in format for a week

Greetings all!We had a crazy busy night last Monday. Super crazy. Which was great to see. Especially as we had an impromptu clothed session with Nicola gracing us with her Wonder Woman costume and a burlesque outfit, alongside Molly who is seven months pregnant (we may try to get her in one more time before she is due).

This coming Monday (the 1st) we’ll be having in Leah, who haven’t had in in awhile now.

The following week we’ll be having something a bit different. Two models, Jane plus newcomer Jodie (who just recently joined the scene from what I understand, but takes part in a great deal of cabaret dancing). One will be clothed for the first hour while the second is nude, then vice-versa for the second hour. We’ll also be trying a different format time-wise. For the first hour the format will be: 2x5min, 3x10min, 1x20min. Then we’re going to repeat that for the second hour as well. Let’s see how that works out!

A reminder that the Drawing School is on again this Sunday (look at the Sunday tab for all the info)!

And one last reminder that the Tuesday night at Curtin has switched rooms (Tuesday tab for all the info).

Happy drawing everyone!

Monday night @ UWA and Sunday with a statue

Greetings all, at the Monday night UWA sessions coming up we have Travis in next week (the 17th), and the following week we’ll be having a double female session with Nicola and Molly (who will be 33 weeks at that point, so this will be the last time we have her in for a very long time I’m sure).

This coming Sunday (the 16th) at the Drawing School, they’ll be having in the living statue, Xanthea, who will be starting off nude and slowly dress in her statue attire during the session. This sounds awesome, and not to be missed. And just a reminder that if you head out to any of the Sunday sessions at the Drawing School till the end of September, you’ll get a stamp towards my sessions on Monday nights (for those who do not know, I have a frequent drawer card, when you come out to five sessions you get the sixth free, so this way you can double dip… actually triple dip as you can also get them if you head to the Mt Hawthorn sessions on Tuesday nights).

Happy drawing everybody!

A model update, general info, and some drawing classes

Greetings all,
Terribly sorry about this late update!
Thank you everyone for coming out lately, the last couple of weeks have seen the numbers start to bounce back after quite a dip. I guess tea and coffee was all it took?
Our model for this coming Monday (the 3rd) will be Ron. The following week will be with a new model model, Shontay.

In news about other sessions:
Tracy’s Drawing School will be on again tomorrow (the 2nd), and from then through to the end of September, anyone who heads out will get a stamp for my group on their card (like what I did with Sebastian’s Mt Hawthorn group when it first started). Head on over to drawingschool.com.au to find out more about her group. 
As the numbers have started to slide back down for Sebastian’s group, we’ve decided to reinstate the stamp system at his group through to the end of August, so get out there people!
The Curtin Tuesday night group will be back this week (the 4th) after a brief hiatus with what sounds to be a pretty cool clothed session. 

Drawing Classes!
Earlier this year I did a two week workshop at The Art Space Collective in Scarborough. Well I’m doing it again, and due to feedback it’s changed a bit.
First off, it will be over four weeks, and be on Saturdays from 2-5pm (as opposed to middle of the week during the day as it was before). The first two weeks will be without a model as it covers drawing techniques and the basics, while the following two weeks will have a model to apply those techniques on in an instructed environment.
Anyone interested can head over to https://theartspacecollective.com/bookings to sign up. 

And that’s it!

Keep drawing, but please don’t hurt people while doing so!
