Greetings all,Well, to make up for the fact that I had to shut down my own Monday evening sessions @ UWA, there is a new group starting up in Shenton Park on Monday nights, not too far from where the old group was being run.
I won’t be running them though, that will be left to Nic who is carrying the torch! She’ll be using a similar format to what I had used (which helps as she was such a regular for my own sessions).
Venue: 271 Onslow Road, Shenton Park, Victoria League, next to The Post Newspapers, Corner King Street (parking available on the street or through the big blue gates on Onslow Road. Access is also through this gate)
Day: Monday evenings – starting from Monday 14th March 2016
Time: 6.00pm – 8.30pm
Format: Similar to my old UWA format
Contact Nic on 0400 550 997
I’ll be stopping by on occasion too, so it’ll be great to get to see some of you again!
Hi all, unfortunately I have some more sad news that The Drawing School on alternating Sunday’s won’t be continuing either due to lack of sufficient numbers (they had a regular crowd, it just wasn’t big enough to keep it going).
Make sure you follow Tracy’s blog though as she has hinted at possible special sessions in the future!
Edit: whoops! Left off the web address! drawing school.com.au
Also, thanks for giving it a go Tracy! Sorry it didn’t last.
Greetings all,I hope the new year has been treating you all well!
Well, I had intended to start this email by letting you folks know that I was putting the UWA sessions with their new Thursday night time slot on hiatus till the end of the first semester due to a variety of reasons (figuring out times with the new job, the boy having just started school full time and being unable to book just a single venue for the beginning of the year meaning we would have had to move around a bit which would be really annoying).
But I am having to let you folks know that we won’t be back at all.
Unfortunately due to circumstances out of my control, I will not be able to continue the sessions at all. So this means the end of the UWA drawing sessions I’m afraid.
But hey, at almost six years of running, that’s over five and a half more than I thought it would last!
So thank you everyone for coming on out over the years, putting up with my terrible taste in music, and allowing me to cram you full of biscuits and lollies (of which I still actually have quite a few packets/biscuits of… perhaps starting a diet two weeks ago wasn’t a good idea…)!
I will continue to keep this website up as a resource for people to find venues in the city, learn about instructed drawing classes and whatever else is going on.
Until next time folks, Take Care!
Greetings all,I hope this time of year hasn’t been stressing you all out too much.
I just wanted to say thank you to everyone for coming out to the UWA sessions on Monday nights over the past year. I hope you all have enjoyed it. And as always, if you haven’t, please let me now what I can do to improve it.
As I mentioned in the last session for the year a couple of weeks ago, we’ll be coming back on Feb 4th. A bit far away I know but I’ll be out of the country for almost all of January.
Also, for those of you who didn’t immediately rush to pencil that in (and seriously, why wouldn’t you?) and notice the oddness of the date, starting next year we’ll be moving to Thursdays. This is on account of my no longer being available on Mondays (because I got stingy and decided to finally stop the freelancing scene and get myself a permanent desk job for three days a week). I do know that this will conflict for some of you, and it’ll be unfortunate to not get you in again, but it was either that or cancel them altogether!
And that’s it. Have a happy and safe holiday season everyone!
P.S: Don’t forget, if you still have the drawing itch over the holidays, check out Graham’s drawing group in Atwell on Sundays as it’s running through the break with two models for each session)
Best regards – Christopher
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
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
Only four more sessions with Life drawing @ UWA on Monday nights left for the year, which is just crazy to think about! This coming Monday we are having in new to the scene, Karen, along with the burlesque dancer, Jodie.
And we’re not the only ones getting close to wrapping up as tomorrow (Sunday 22nd) is the last Drawing School session with Tracy at Lazy Susan’s in the Brisbane Hotel. By request they are having back in the flamenco dancer from a couple of months ago, Sofia, for a clothed session which sounds fantastic! As an added bonus, if you head on out give Tracy your card from my group and earn yourself one more bonus stamp for the year.
We had a great double session last week with Xanthea and newish-to-Perth, Bonnie!
Over the next couple of weeks we’ll be having solo sessions with:
- The wonderful Rebecca on October 19th
- Tiny Leah will be joining us on the 26th
- The elusive Lucy on November 2nd (seriously, she has been hard to track down lately)
- November 9th will feature new to our group Ebony, for a session being run by Jules for the night (thanks Jules!). This also means that there will be no coffee or tea for the night as Jules will not be able to access the urn that we use.
Sorry folks, my bad, Erwin’s sessions are actually on Wednesdays, not Thursdays. Not sure how I made that mistake as I even had his session info on the Wednesday page. Go figure.
This coming Monday over at UWA we’ll be having in the living statue herself, Xanthea, along with newish to Perth from Canada, Bonnie (I say newish as she was modelling down in Margaret River for a couple of months).
On Sunday, the Drawing School will be having in the lovely Jodie. Even though she is new to the field of life modelling, was actually able to hold her own with quite well with the pro Jane when we had the two of them in a few weeks ago.
Speaking of Sunday, Erwin has informers me that he is no longer running his sessions on Sundays. That being said, his Thursday night sessions are starting back up this coming Thursday (the 14th) with the start time of 6:30pm. The model he’ll be having that night is the always awesome Martha. For those of you looking for a session with longer poses, you should certainly check them out (all the details are on the Thursday page).
Happy drawing, people!
