life drawing in perth

Long time coming!

Greetings all,

Terribly sorry about my lack of updates over the last few months. Life has been crazy busy, and sadly life drawing has started to fall to the wayside for me. 

But now for an update!

The Sunday sessions at Atwell have had a bit of a quite period of late, but they are continuing their format of having two models. One for long loses, the other for shorter ones.

The Monday night sessions in Shenton Park are going strong. And Nic who runs it was just informed that the rent she is paying to the Victoria League this month is going towards aiding a homeless man aquire clothing and food. That is certainly one way to make you feel better about drawing! There is no session this coming Monday due to the public holiday, but their line up of models for October is – 

  • 3rd Alex
  • 10th Hayley
  • 17th Stacey
  • 24th Deb 
  • 31st Kieran

Alex, Stacey and Deb are all new names to me, but Kieran is a classic and always great fun to draw, and Hayley is one of my favourite models on the circuit due to the really great poses she uses, so this should be a great month to get out there and give drawing a go (I too will be endeavouring to due so as I miss it far too much).

Cheers

A model update for a fantastical session!

Greetings all!We’re coming close to the end of the year for us, and to celebrate we have a pretty awesome session coming up this Monday.

Our models will be the fantastic Xanthea and Martha. They will pose nude for the first hour, and for the second Xanthea will do a series of short poses as she gets into her living statue attire before ending on a 20min pose in full garb. And while she’s getting dressed, Martha will be rocking a 1920s garb for two 20min poses and ending on two 10min poses in what will be our final clothed session for the year. 

All that, plus, Kensingtons and Iced Vovos!

Cheers – Christopher

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!

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

You can also visit her site drawingschool.com.au for more info.

Happy drawing everybody!

A model update and a holiday

Greetings all!
We’ve been having a great turnout of late, so thank you all for that!

This coming Monday (tomorrow night) will be a male/ female session, with a first for us: a 55 year old woman (Rebecca, who we haven’t had in before) with a 30 year old man (Travis, who we have had in quite a few times before). Every other time it’s been the other way around for us.

The following week (the 30th), we have a new model from Germany in by the name of Mirjam.

On April 6th there will be no session as it will be a public holiday, so we’ll be back the week after that.

Cheers

Big model update

Greetings all,
Sorry about the late update (yet again). Stupid illness and work caught me unawares.

Tomorrow night (the 27th) we’ll be having a new model for us (and newish to the scene as well), Marisa.
The following week (Nov 3rd) we’ll be having in Lindsay (who has not been in in quite awhile) and Joe.
On Nov 10th our models for the evening will be Chloé and Sarah.
The 17th I’m stall waiting on confirmation for (I’m trying to get in new/unused models before the end of the year, so hopefully they’ll be unfamiliar faces).
The 24th is going to be exciting, as we’ll be having our first double clothed session with Jane and Beth! Apparently they even met up yesterday to talk about costumes (and I put in a request for one of them to be Jane’s steampunk, as I was disappointed I had to miss it last time).

After that we’ll have two more sessions for the year, Dec 1st and 8th.

See you all tomorrow night.

A model update (or, why am I always playing catch-up?)

Good afternoon everyone, We continue to have some great
turnouts to the sessions so thank you all for that. This coming
Monday (the 21st) we’ll be having in two familiar faces; Chloé and
Nin. The following week (28th) we’ll be having in Jean who we have
had in once before and newcomer Hayley (who was unable to to make
it last time and was replaced by Leah). Cheerio!
