Surely, if we wanted to get through this quickly and with minimum impact we would be ‘confined to quarters’. All of us. Only small teams of signed off workers ought to be allowed on the streets and they would be delivering food to those in need. Total lockdown, although economically crippling, would seem the swiftest way to get through this.
This Tuesday our super friendly group met up for their weekly fix of charcoal and a cuppa, and, as always, such a fab and diverse mix of artists and styles emerged.
Voluntary Arts Wales has initiated a growing network of public life drawing classes to support both the community and life drawing alike. They use municipal buildings and spaces that have fallen out of regular use (like libraries and churches) to host weekly sessions- advocating for arts involvement to the wider populace, regardless of background or experience.
We hope that our models will one day populate the cartoons of the future! To the future and beyond!
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.
We’d like to reach out to South Wales based artists and then blog them…
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…
It was the second of the free festivals organised and delivered by Andy and Maisie along with help from all of the stallholders and performers and workshop hosts.
This was the last of the Cardiff Arts Free Festivals, the brainchild of Andy and delivered with support of artists and Little Man and poets and musicians in the centre of Cardiff.
Every year, for the last life drawing session of the year, we call in all models and go for a Christmas Party!
