Event description
London Drawing Group are pleased to welcome back guest tutor Lily Holder for "FROM LIFE" - a series of online life drawing classes.

About this Event

For our first session of the year, we have invited the exquisitely talented life model and yoga teacher Vanessa Abreu to join us for a mini retreat - at home! We hope this will be an opportunity for our students to relax, be playful and enjoy an escape from daily stresses for a couple of hours.

To start the class, Vanessa will guide us through a 50 minute yoga practise that will start with the intention to build some energy and heat before we flow through to a more reflective, meditative, relaxing practise. Following our yoga practise, we will take a short break to grab our drawing materials - and perhaps a cup of tea - before settling into a one hour life drawing session. The aim of the drawing portion of this class will be to slow down and focus on playfulness rather than creating masterpieces.

The New Year can be a stressful time, especially in our current climate, so we hope this session will provide a gentle way to break the ice and return to your drawing practise after the Christmas break.

Both the yoga and drawing portions of this online retreat will be suitable for ALL LEVELS - However, please do get in touch with us if you have any questions about what to expect.

Everyone is welcome to join this pay-what-you-can class. We suggest a donation of £10, however we understand that may not be possible for everybody. Please be honest and pay what you can afford so that we may continue to offer our sessions on a donation basis whilst also paying our guest tutors and models a sustainable wage.

YOU WILL NEED:

- Something comfy to wear for yoga. Activewear, leggings, anything you can move freely and comfortably in.

- A yoga mat. If you don't have a yoga mat at home, you can use a beach towel or a carpet as an alternative.

- Some cushions and a blanket to keep you cosy in the latter stages of our yoga flow.

- Paper, we recommend A3 and above to allow for expressive, flowing lines.

- Something to draw with! We love charcoal at LDG but you can also experiment with pencils, pen, soft pastels, oil pastels etc - whatever you have in your home!

ETIQUETTE:

The world of online life drawing is a new to us and we are all still trying to work out how best to keep our life models safe whilst also continuing to support their artistry during this time. Unless otherwise stated, our life models will be working semi-clothed. Please note that taking screenshots or reference images during class is not permitted or appropriate.

This class will be recorded and sent out to all participants an hour after the end of the live class. This recording can be viewed once within 72 hours.

WE HAVE SET UP AN EMAIL WITH THE ZOOM LINK TO ARRIVE IN YOUR INBOX 1 DAY BEFORE AND AGAIN 3 TIMES BEFORE WE START. PLEASE CHECK YOUR JUNK FOLDER.

If you need help with anything please EMAIL us through eventbrite or directly at londondrawinggroup@gmail.com - facebook and instagram messages are easily lost.

And that's it! We're really looking forward to you joining us.

Love,

LDG
