About the Event
The Best thing you could possibly do, to stay Artistic and Happy with your Friends, our Network members, colleagues and family, on Tuesday, and soon hopefully on Friday all Day wherever you are as well as locally near you.
I started drawing people before I could walk and probably still will after... :)
I Was commissionned from the age of 6, started pub Portrait drawing classes in London UK when we could hardly see each other through the fog, before the 2007 smoking ban from 2003, and continued, providing help for those who missed that skills and who just could never finish their Life Drawings. 2003, 20 years ago, was the time, when I decided to save Figure drawing from the Ipad drawing take over that had begun with classes closing down all over. As I was a Photographer for 15 years before that, and having witnessed the end of the Film, having worked and trained others in Camera shops (Jessops), I had to try to fix this problem, no matter the cost and guess what!? :) This was my bit of influencing (as they say) for the Arts which I always consider more as growing seeds and letting things grow while improving everyone's quality of life...
Because we talk a lot, socialize, giggle when having a class and because this is an international group, once a month we do French, Spanish, or Italian speaking, while Drawing, which we could also do more regularly on another day, if enough takers.
Those who need to Draw, improve need to watch this video and donate £6/$8 when booking a class on Eventbrite, on Meetup or on our Website no matter what their level is. Those who have skills already and will pose for others to draw them, as well as showing their Drawings at the end only donate £3/$4. If our Monday Life model poses for Bust and Portrait on the day, everybody needs to donate only £5/$6.25. Those low costs are designed to help participants donate to models they'd like to draw again. To make this even more possible you'll find our memberships to save even more so you can donate and influence more (See our Memberships page). All memberships and our £10/$13 weekly tickets entitle you to the links of all weekly recordings of classes, when full £15/£20/£30 a month give you access to all past recordings with or without guidance.
All weeekly classes start at 7pm UK time, 2pm in New york, 11am in Seattle and 8pm in Paris/Western Europe. Future All day weekend (incl. Friday) Life Drawing or Portraiture will go on for 12 hours from 11am to 11pm UK time.
The Best drawings created from Live classes or recordings/both could be auctionned to raise funds the way you want, for charities, models, Art teachers etc...
If you intend to travel soon or later, and want to make new interesting creative friends you may want to join us asap.
If you'd like to commission someone to draw/paint portraits get in touch and if you'dlike to bring creativity and hapiness to your company/Business, join us online or we come to you, near you for good old Fun Life Drawing or Portrait events if UK or France based.
I only draw, at the moment, with Pencils, ball pen and coloured pencils, I used Oil and charcoal long ago, but when our numbers will have trippled, I'll have more time to put into my Art again and will absolutely enjoy a new era or Painting and Sculpture, possibly with you...
