I sit here in my kitchen on April 3rd, watching the snain come down.. will it ever end? Rain, rain, glimpses of spbrrrrring, sunny moments that remind me I should repair my sunglasses. Anyway, let's celebrate the inside out umbrella once and for all. Might get my sunnies repaired for some interim sunshine poses. And a mighty fine sun/rain playlist of course. 'Mon doon and let's invoke the brighter, warmer weather.
It's 7-9pm at Summerhall's Anatomy Lecture Theatre. On Wednesdays our models pose within a lightly themed set-up: nude enough to engage simply with the figure, yet embellished enough to explore the themed approach if inspiration strikes. It's £6 on the door, which opens at 6.40ish, or buy a ticket online to come to the front and skip the queue, tick yourself off, and get a good seat. (The cut off for a guaranteed seat with an online ticket is 6.50pm). It's chilled out drawing and tunes, with chilled bevvies from the bar. Or herb tea if you like. (Brownie points for bringing a keep cup!). There are materials to buy and borrow (including boards) and we welcome all ages and stages. If you need drawing advice just ask me (Topaz) (or whoever is sitting next to you- make a new friend!)
Did you know we run loads of sessions all over town? As well as these themed sessions, you can draw to a live musical accompaniment on:
Mondays at the Pianodrome studio at Custom House, *8-10pm* (doors 7.40) for a £10ish donation (as you can afford) with BYOB and a donations teastation- more info at Pianodrome: life drawing ¦ live music
and the last Tuesday of the month, 7-9pm again at Summerhall's Anatomy Lecture Theatre, again for £10ish - more info at Life drawing with live music.
And if you're under 25, you can enjoy subsidised sessions with Out of the Blueprint 2-3.30pm on the first Saturday of the month. More info under Print Jam!
And sometimes we run extravanganza collaborations and tutored sessions with creatives from far and wide. Sometimes more, sometimes less experimental, always something new, different, surprising. Materials are included in the ticket price for these sessions, and I provide a bar (or tea station!) for additional tipples, and sometimes some nibbles to soak it all up. You can subscribe to the events to be notified of such happenings. Check out the full schedule at www.facebook.com/reconfigurative/events.
Looking forward to welcoming you at some nude situation soon
Topaz and co xx
