We have added an extra visit in May. Nice time of year and a great opportunity to experience 8 full days of studio painting, drawing, portraits, life drawing and some landscape. Reasonably priced and great accommodation.
Take a look at tab, Bali Bound on this website for more details.
We have had a cancellation for our Bali life drawing and portrait visit departing 6th February returning 16th. 2017. Take a look at the Bali Bound heading on this home page. More information and great pics.
Hope you can join us.
We already have a fantastic facility at the Bassendan Community Centre, and it just got better. They have upgraded the fitting and curtains and there is now a splendid wooden floor that beautiful reflects the light. Last week they installed reverse cycle air conditioning. Yippee……. not more cold artists and even colder models. So if you are in for some luxury life drawing, up to three sessions running, great food, great models and 5 star conditions this is the place for you. More details go the The Scene.
Hello , here is a new group that is well and truly underway, run by Maggie Hayes in East Fremantle.
Greetings Fellow Artists,
I am an artist who loves to draw the human form, so I have started LIFE DRAWING sessions in my home studio at EAST FREMANTLE.
Initially, these sessions are NOT being run as lessons, but as an opportunity for artists wanting to draw the figure to come together and participate in a 2.5 hour session, once per week.
The weeks will be set out in 8 week terms, roughly in tandem with school holidays.
Sessions will include a variety of long and short poses which will cater for different styles of work; but this approach can be varied depending on the wishes of those present. Anyone can join any time.
each session will require:
- a payment of $18.00 x 8 weeks, or $144 payable in advance, so that I can secure models. Alternatively, if you want to addend casually, the cost each session is $25.
- Participants must bring all their own materials, although butchers and brown paper is available from a roll.
- There are still three sessions to go until the end of term, the new term will begin on 25/7/16 and will run as follows:
JULY / AUGUST
Week 1: July 2 Monday 6.30 pm – 9pm
Week 2: August 8
Week 3: August 15
Week 4: August 22
Week 5: August 29
Week 6: September 5 Monday 6.30 -9pm
Week 7: September 12
Week 8: September 19
Please contact me if you are interested at: email@example.com or: ph: 0423765485
My 15th Art Retreat to Bali is from August 8th to the 16th. These are always popular and I only take 4 persons [three already booked]
If you would like to check out the details go the the BALI BOUND tag at the top right of this page.
We travel on the 7th and return on the 17th [9 nights] and of course you might want to add to your stay. I booked these dates on Jetstar and was amazed that the return airfare was only $219
Look forward to hearing from you.
If you go back on this blog to May last year you will find a post about male model Travis Betts, along with a great drawing I did of him. It was done at his request prior to him taking on some tats across his chest.
Tragically, Travis died today.
He is well known in life drawing circle, not the least for his amazing ability to endure very long poses. He was so well regarded as a top notch professional, always engaging, deep and personable. Sincere condolences to Tavis’s brother Trent and family.
The Artistic Hen is looking for gym fit males to model for their Hen’s drawing groups.
Mostly weekend work, well paid, and lots of fun if you are up to it. You need to have a good body and lots of friendly personality to work as a nude model for groups of up to 25 ladies, out to have a good time and also learn to draw. The sessions are well run with a qualified tutor and enthusiastic students. Let me know if you are interested via contact me, and answering the questions in the ‘being a model ‘ section on this site.
Life Drawing is well and truly under way in Perth after the seasonal break. If you are interested in being a model this is the time to do something about it. Go to the Being a Model section on this site and have a good read. If you are applying, please answer all of the questions required, it really helps. We are especially looking for more fit MALE MODELS so if that’s you we would like to know.
We start again at Bassendean community Centre, next Monday 25th January. Please come and join us.
This is a wonderful group on enthusiastic drawers there is plenty of space and always two groupings and models. One for single pose portraits and the other for varied pose life drawing. Sometimes we add a further group for a single pose nude, so there is lots of choice, great morning tea, atmosphere, and intentionality. $15 per session detalis below.
Hope to see you there!
Many more drawing groups have started up this year and its great to know how life drawing is becoming a mainstream, challenging pastime. Our group at FAB [Fine Art Bassendean] averaged around 30 attendees per session across the year, a splendid response!
As for me, I did fewer drawing this year, mostly because I have been grappling with other mediums and also because I have been away.
Special thank you to my colleagues at FAB Jeff and Bonnie, we make a great team. Also here is a glimpse of our last couple of sessions with two favourites; partners Travis and Sarah. So good to draw!
Thank you all for your comment about my site and drawings. Hoping your sharpening the pencils for next year!
