It has indeed been awhile since my last post (240 days apparently, at least that is what WordPress is telling me)! I blame the new baby for that. I think I can still get away with that for another few months yet.
A couple of updates about some sessions. First up, the Curtin sessions have moved from Tuesday to Wednesday nights. All of the details are the same. This means that if you are looking to satisfy your drawing itch on Tuesday’s nights, I highly recommend hitting up Sebastian’s sessions. The details are on the Tuesday’s page.
Secondly, the Wednesday morning sessions have moved from Hackett Hall. When I get the full details I’ll update it ASAP.
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!
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).
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.
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!
I fixed my mistake with the Tuesdays session at Mt Hawthorn (in that I accidentally erased it), and I also updated the Atwell session with some info I just received today.
Sorry about the confusion folks!
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.
