It’s a weekly thing, we only stop for the festive season, and it’s a well received and relaxed couple of hours of life drawing, sketching a nude or nudes, chatting to local artists and chilling in the Little Man’s very quiet vault.
Tuesday just gone saw our newest model, Emma, rock up to Little Man for a two hour session of life drawing. This is on of our weekly turn up and sketch, no need to book sessions (the other is on a Sunday afternoon) and it’s informal and fun atmosphere has endeared it to the regulars and thrills the newcomers 🙂
We used to do a fair bit of work at Crosskeys. Those modelling hours disappeared this academic year as the college decided to not provide life drawing (we’re unsure of how they will be able to get their students through their course work commitments) due to issues with paying us by invoice and also, we believe, the lack of desire amongst the tutors to deliver life drawing sessions.
It’s 2020 and we haven’t had a decent programme of events running for some time so Andy spent a day working out times and places and the who’s and why’s and here it is, the tutored sessions and the just for fun sessions and the performance sessions
It was January 12th and a chilly Sunday in Cardiff but Little Man Coffee Companies doors were open and the on the premises baked and cooked cakes and snacks as well as a range of coffees, teas and somethings stronger were on offer…
First session back at Neath College following the Christmas break and the tutor, Ben, was not letting the students off lightly – it was straight in with paint and stiff plastic tools to drag it across the paper.
