Model info for some groups about town!

Greetings all,

I hope you folks haven’t been letting the weather keep you from heading out to do some drawing (sadly, I am using that excuse for myself).

Over the next few weeks, the Shenton Park Monday night group has a few models lined up:

  • April 18th is Amy
  • April 25th is Anzac Day so no life drawing that evening
  • 2nd May is Jane
  • 8th May is Joe, the first male so far with the group

And over at The Art Space Collective, their fortnightly Drawing Theatre sessions will continue on April 28th (7-9pm) with Jane. 

Happy doodles everyone!

Final model update and a big whoops!

Greetings all, Firstly, an incredibly huge apology for forgetting to post about the session we had this week! It was a great one with the delightful Amy and new for us (and first time back after a 20 year hiatus, bodybuilder Shaun. Thankfully we still had a great turnout!

We also had a fantastic turnout the week before. Now I’m not sure if it was because it was Xanthea and Martha, or because it was a clothed session. Regardless it was crazy, and I will make sure to have more of all of that next year!

For our final session on the 14th, well, I didn’t think I could top the wonderful duos we have had of late, but I may have just done so (or at the least tied), as we will be having in the lovely Victoria and the awesome Hayley! I am personally happy to have Hayley in as she is no longer available on Monday nights, so it has been quite awhile for us. 

So that’s it, just on more session for us this year!

On that note, before I forget; for those interested the Sunday group at Atwell is going to continue running through out the holiday season. Check out the Sunday section for more details, but basically they are now regularly having in two models per session, and have one doing a long pose whilst the other does shorter poses. Pretty cool I must say. 

Cheers – Christopher

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 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 drawingschool.com.au/FAQ).

COST: $20 cash (no eftpos).

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

Happy drawing everybody!

Some model updates and no session Sep 29th

Good evening all, sorry again about the late update (I do not know where the weekends keep going).

Tomorrow night (the 22nd), we’ll be having a solo session with Nicola. Well, I say a solo session, but the model who I booked in last week on short notice for a cancellation but no-showed us may turn up thinking that I had intended to book her in for this week. I don’t know as I haven’t been able to reach her. It’s like a a box-o-chocolate life drawing session, you never know who’ll turn up! (I jest, I always feel bad when a model doesn’t turn up so I do apologise for that.)

There will be no session on the 29th due to the public holiday (Labour day in a Liberal state? How can that stand?).

When we return on the 6th, Sebastian will be running the session for me (as I’ll be recovering from running the 24 Hour Comics Day event the weekend before). The models for that night will be Amy with Trent.

And the following week (the 13th), we’ll be having in Victoria who is back in Perth. The first hour will be nude drawing, and for the second hour Victoria will be wearing some of her Moulin Rouge finest. This should be something to see.

Happy drawing everyone!

A clothed model update

Good afternoon everyone, and a happy Friday the 13th!
We’ve been having some great turnouts lately with lots of new faces which is always great to see.
This coming Monday, for our clothed session, we’ll be having a new model in by the name of Beth. Beth owns a vintage clothing store and will be wearing a couple of fancy of outfits from her inventory which will be awesome I’m sure.
The following week will be our first double female session with Tess and Amy!
Cheers

A huge model update and some info!

Good evening everyone, it was just pointed out to me today that I hadn’t updated with any info lately, so I do apologise

Tomorrow night (the 19th) we’ll be having a double model session with long time regular Ron, and new face from Thailand, Jean (those of you who go to the Floreat sessions will recognise her as she’s been in at least twice in the last three months).
After that we’ll be having:
26 May – single session with Eila, a newer face to the life modelling scene, and the first time we’ll be having her in.
2 June – No session due to the holiday.
9 June – double model session with Tess, and Captain America himself, Joel.
16 June – clothed session with the always great Victoria in her best burlesque outfits.
23 June – double model session first for us with two female models, the always happy Amy and the soon to be heading back overseas Milly for what will be the last time we’ll be having her in.

*Whew*

And now the other info!

The Tuesday night session at Curtin being run by Mike apparently went really well last week. Just a note that the classes are now going to start at 6:15 and are on level 5. He also has a blog running at http://experimentaldwg.wordpress.com

Happy drawing everyone!
