Welcome to our Online Life Drawing session. We will be holding these twice a week during the lockdown to keep us all practising, to connect with other like minded people and just for a bit of fun!
When all this started, I wasn't sure if live Life Drawing sessions could work, but after some investigating and having a go myself, I realised it's really rather brilliant. Not only do you get the opportunity to draw, you also get to do it with other people - somehow there is still very much a community feeling and all the usual meditative benefits from a normal session.
ANYONE can do it, all degrees of skill - maybe you've been too nervous to give it a go at the Studio? Now is your chance to have a go in the comfort of your own home!
We're lucky to be in contact with some truly professional life models from all over the world, who have made the online leap with relative ease, setting up some great backdrops and lighting in their own homes. We'll be following a pretty typical pattern for the sessions: warm ups followed by some longer poses with a break in between.
All you need to do is download the Zoom app, then you can be drawing to your hearts content for 2 whole hours with one of our amazing live models. Zoom is free and it's really pretty easy to navigate, it's being used the world over for meetings, online yoga sessions, guitar lessons and of course ART CLASSES!
Once you have paid for this session, you will get an email from us with very clear and easy to follow instructions on how to join in. You can join in alone, you can arrange to virtually 'meet up' with friends & family or you can make friends with the lovely people who are also drawing on the day. You’ll need a computer or tablet with good internet connection.
What else will you need?
Something to draw with - anything from a good old fashioned pencil, charcoal, pen, crayons, colour pencils, pastels - even ink or paints!
Paper (loose sheets or sketchbook)
A nice glass of wine (optional)
