A rather excellent 3rd year film student studying at the University of South Wales, Anna Korecka, got in touch with us and after getting to know us and attending a few sessions of life drawing a plan began to hatch. A good while after our first contact Anna was back in touch and she had done an amazing thing, securing support from the BBC and winning one of four student documentary film slots!
‘This is wholly unacceptable either from a business or from a charity or from whatever the SU regards itself as. The appalling disregard of eight years of contact with, employment by and support for student groups by myself and by Cardiff Life Model Collective and by my other business Wales Outdoors in favour of the actions of a new Art Society president without any attempt at settling this matter in an amicable manner is as close to as beyond belief as I think I have been in all of my business associations.’
JJ is one of the organisers of the group and she attends mostly all Sunday and Tuesday sessions, on hand to stand in if a model gets delayed or can’t make it. On this occasion however she was planned in as it’s rare to get a no show nowadays, all Cardiff Life Models being the absolute essence of reliability 🙂
Animals can be difficult to work with, along with children, as the saying goes, but Andy did well, keeping the broad selection of wild beasts under control. Delving deeply into his method acting processes and delivering a tour de force of earthy, visceral and startlingly real animal poses, the assembled artists will be drawing on this session for inspiration for some time to come 😉
We’ve been looking at the power of reviews over on Andy’s walking group Wales Outdoors and thought while we were at it we’d ask for some help over here – Please be lovely and take some time out to review us 🙂
If you’d like to book a model for your life drawing session simply email Andy with your idea/plan/date etc and he’ll be in touch
You’ll have seen my posts Google Are Scum and Google Are Scum 2 that detail the idiocy and meanness displayed by google. This is a further update…
We will be starting back in Merthyr Tydfil, life drawing sessions in ‘The Bothy’ once a month on Thursdays from April.
First of, hopefully, a unique series of quotes heard by our models whilst in the life room…
The proposed Cardiff Life Model Collective life drawing show, ‘Life Lines’, has been cancelled due to the intervention of a couple that I have endeavoured to help and support and who are currently claiming copyright infringement or something along those lines.
