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!

Drawn Life Exhibition 2015 Roundup

We had our annual exhibition (this year titles Drawn Life) in early March, and it looked fantastic (also, just figured out the new WordPress method of inserting pics, knew it wouldn’t take me too long)!

No session, a model update, and our annual exhibition!

Greetings all!

First up, there is no session this coming Monday (the 2nd) thanks to it being a public holiday.

When we come back on the 9th, we’ll be having new for us Martha, along with new to Perth from France, Jeanne. Yes, a surprise double session! Though not so much a surprise now that I’ve just revealed it…

Next up, we have our annual show this coming Friday at 6pm! Feel free to come on out for a drink and to look at some artworks. It’s in the Cullity Gallery, which is located on the ground floor of the tall building right next to where we have our drawing sessions!

And lastly, The Art Space Collective in Scarborough is doing a special this month where a friend can join you for free at their drawing sessions on Thursday mornings, which basically makes it half price if you two share the costs!

A model change and exhibition

Greetings all,
There has been a change in the model for next week. I originally announced that David 2 (the name I shall be referencing him by to separate him from the other David we’ve had in quite a few times before) would be our model but he has had to cancel, so instead we will be having Travis as our model for the session. Following that, on the 7th, we’ll be having a new model by the name of Tess.

I also wish to let you all know that one of our regulars, Tom, will be having a solo show of his works next Friday (April 4th) in Artlaab (right across the street from us, the south east corner of Stirling Hwy and Hampden Rd [or Broadway as it becomes]) starting @6pm. So come on out.
