Our Monday session is a theatre for Life models and artists to Draw and be drawn. This is where Artists can talk about themselves and Model can do what they are usually talented at which is acting. We get to know them and Draw them exactly as they are.
Time & Location
22 may, 19:00 – 19:20 GMT+1
About the Event
Every Monday we Draw people who want to say something, express themselves, act or just chat with others while posing, so it different every week and always a surprise every time :).
We try to draw our Tuesday Life Drawing model for 1/2 hour to an hour and get to know them a little better so that on Monday we have a much much much better idea on who they are and can then influence our drawings in purpose or not.
This idea started in a Great, old, lovely London Stepney green Pub in 2008 I think, where many of us, I haven't seen for a while :(, where acting, singing, giving speeches, art modeling while 10 to 15 participant artists would draw, paint, when not posing/acting. It was insanely fun especially with the help of one or two £1 drinks then.
This was after the smoking ban of 2007 so we could see each other well enough to be able to draw each others, which was quite difficult before. This was also Part of the birth of "Drink and Draw" events when they became accessible to all smoker and non smoker Artists/enthusiats. I ran those in 103 pubs around london for Drnk & Draw events, regular Life Drawing, Portraits, Burlesque and for Offices/groups from 2004 to 2018 when Corvid happened. We also used another 10/15 cafes and Parks for daytime Portraits, for coffee, daylight and Drawing lovers like myself :).
In 2011 for a year or two I went a bit bankers and started something called "Sketchy theatre", that went wild, and attracted the attention of professionals in the Theatre industry, and so when I realized that the idea and concept were getting studied and that the word "Sketchy" is not the best word for this, oops excuse my French, I packed eveything and removed all information everywhere as I didn't have the capital or investors to push this through. A few theatres did a few things for a few years that showed they came to watch the shows. We even participated to the Camden Fringe Theatre Festival and spoke to a few mega celebs who checked the potential of this idea...
Today, it is, your turn and chance to be able to enjoy some international exposure while continuing doing what we love doing the most in the comfort of our homes, optionally with a cup of coffee or a £1/$1 drink from the shop...
If we all do our little networking and use our influence for this, we will run 3 to 4 surprise events every year. I'll try to keep it a surprise for as long as possible...
We will use themes from Shakespeare, Austen, Kipling, Bronte and many more amazing British Writers and Poets or Comedy acts...
We'll also cross seas and borders with American, Australian, or anywhere really participants and themes. Hopefully this idea won't get used everywhere, too quickly, as this could affect its success because of its novelty and originality.
