A model switcheroo

Greetings all,

Just a quick update as to a change in the model line up tomorrow night, as Nicola is unfortunately no longer to make it in. So we will instead be having in Eila to accompany Martha for the session.

Also, cause I don’t think I’ve mentioned it on here, I started having coffee and tea for people during the session. I figure that should make the cooler nights more bearable.

A new model update

Greetings all,
Terribly sorry about the delay in getting this through to you (the week was busier than I was expecting it to be).
For our session this coming Monday (the 13th), we’ll be having Ewen in for the first time. It’s been quite a while since we’ve had a solo male model session and it’s long overdue.
The following week (the 20th), we’ll be having in Nathan and Sam, for a male/female session (again, I think it’s been awhile since we did one of those). As an added bonus, Nathan and Sam are a couple and are completely comfortable doing contact posing together, which is something that we haven’t had between the opposite sex since… since I think our first ever double session actually, with Kieran and Amy. Which was quite awhile ago. So that’ll be a treat.

Keep drawing till it hurts, people!

Both a model and info update

Greetings all,
Sorry about the late update!

This coming Monday (the 29th) we’ll be having in new-to-the-scene Claire.
The following Monday we’ll be having in one of our classics, Victoria!

For anyone interested, some of the info for different sessions has been updated:
– I’ve updated the info for the Tuesday night session at Atwell (that makes three groups running on a Tuesday night, crazy)
– Rai’s sessions on Thursdays, and
– Tracy’s drink & draw, Drawing School, sessions on Sundays.

Happy scribbling folks

A late model update and a new drawing group!

Greetings all,

Sorry about my tardiness of late (why does it take so long to catch up on things after coming back from vacation?)!

This coming Monday (the 22nd ) we’ll be having in one of our regular models, Amy, along with new to the scene Molly!

In other news, I’ve recently received some thorough information on the Thursday morning sessions and I’ll be updating that on Monday.

And quite excitingly, there is a NEW Sunday session, which is also a bit of a drink and draw. I’ll let newer-to-our-group Tracy explain it all:

Starting this Sunday June 21st, we kick off our fortnightly Life Drawing sessions at Lazy Susan’s Comedy Den, upstairs at The Brisbane Hotel.

The session will consist of timed poses from warm-up gesture drawings to longer poses, in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. Everyone welcome, but please note these sessions are directed to designers and those with some life drawing experience, as sessions are not formally tutored, although plenty of encouraging guidance from me, and a brief show & tell at the end. Fun!

You’re welcome to bring a beverage from the Brissie downstairs (encouraged, actually!).

WHEN: Every second Sunday, 4pm – 6.30pm, with a short break (NB Sunday 19th July will be 5pm-7.30pm)

WHERE: Upstairs at The Brisbane Hotel, 292 Beaufort St, Perth (stairway near the pool tables). Plenty of adjacent parking.

BRING: paper, charcoal, pencils, kneaded eraser (see

COST: $20 cash (no eftpos).

Contact me (Tracy) if you have any questions on (just replace ‘AT’ in the address with a ‘@’) or 0412 192 694

Happy drawing everybody!

Model line-up for the next couple of weeks

Greetings all,

I hope everyone is having themselves a good weekend.

This coming Monday (the 25th), we’ll be having a double female model session with the living statue, Xanthea, and new to the scene Becca.

The following week, June 1st, WA Day, Jules will be running the session for me with Ashlea (from the Curtin Tuesday night group) being our model for the evening. This is the first public holiday we’re going to be running on, so here’s hoping we get a good turnout. If so we’ll keep doing it.

The week after that, June 8th, we’ll be having in new-for-us Cassie.

Big thanks again to Sebastian for running the Sesson for me last Monday on such short notice.

Happy drawing people!

A couple of model updates

Greetings all,
My apologies for the delayed update, things went a bit topsy-turvey at the end of the week.

Tomorrow night (the 18th) we’ll be having a male/female model session with two new models, Jodie and Yves (well, for us, they have both modelled before, over in Melbourne and overseas). Sebastian will also be running the session for me as I’m afraid I cannot make it in.

The following week we’ll be having a double female session (models still to be confirmed, but it will most like be a new model with a returning one).

The week after that is June 1st, WA Day, and we’ll be having a session that night! Our first ever public holiday session. Jules will be running the session for me as I’ll be out of town, and the model for the night will be Ashlea.

I hope some of you took advantage of the stamp offer for Sebastian’s Tuesday night sessions, just remember that it will continue through till the end of June.

Happy drawing folks!

A model update, info on drawing sessions at The Art Space Collective and some pictures

Greetings all,

We had an incredibly great turnout this week with our new model Aya, so thank you for that everyone! Next week (the 11th) we’ll be having in Nicola.

The Art Space Collective at 80A Scarborough Beach Rd Has a heap of drawing classes on this month:

  • 14th May 10-12pm
  • 19th May 7-9pm
  • 21st May 10-12pm and 7-9pm (Drawing Theatre)
  • 28th May 10-12pm

They’ve also changed their session rates; $20 per session, but two people rocking up together pay $30 (so $15 each).

And pictures from the sessions when we had in Jane and Aya:
