Life drawing ¦ 101 ways to sit on a chair
Wed 5 April 2017, 19:00 – 21:00 BST
How many ways are there to sit on a chair? This session we will be challenging London based life model Dominic Blake to find as many varied chair-poses as he can muster. It should make for a fun and dynamic drawing session, and if we don't get 101, we will get at least 13 (the number of poses my models generally do during the sessions).
Join us at our weekly life drawing sessions, Wednesdays 7-9pm (doors 6.45). For the three weeks (March 29th, April 5th and 12th) we will be hosted by the beautiful Naomi Garriock of Basic Mountain. We will be back at Summerhall on April 19th. It's drop-in, £6 on the door, or you can pre book for a guaranteed seat. There's no tutoring per se but we welcome all ages and stages, and I (Topaz) will be on hand to give help to those who want it. We'll provide the models and drawing boards, and there's materials to buy and to borrow, though you're welcome to bring your favoured paraphernalia. There'll be good tunes during the drawing and good chat during the breaks. Updates on a wee bar while we're on holiday from Summerhall TBC. Each week we'll have our wonderful models in a lightly themed set-up: nude enough to engage simply with the figure, yet quirky enough to explore the themed approach if inspiration strikes: check out the full schedule here.
We also run life drawing/performance art/workshop sessions once a month. Sometimes more, sometimes less experimental, always something new, different, surprising. Materials are included in the ticket price for these sessions, and I provide a bar for additional tipples, and some nibbles to soak it all up.
Looking forward to welcoming you at some nude situation soon,
