If you can host in your garden then we can supply a body. We would require you to have safe protocols when having a model enter your house to get to the garden and there must be a private area in the garden, not overlooked by neighbours, where the model can pose. In accordance with the stupid Welsh Ass Covid Rules we can only supply you with a local model so when enquiring we will need to know your address and then we can check who we have nearby.
You can book us for a private session of your own… email firstname.lastname@example.org
James was working our Little Man session in the centre of Cardiff. This turn up and sketch, no need to book session has been running for 10 years now and there is no intention to change that anytime soon.
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.
So, we asked the National Museum if we could deliver once a month life drawing in various rooms in the museum with a model or models reacting to the artworks in that room. We committed to delivering a minimum of one session in Welsh and also having a Welsh speaking artist on hand at all others. We said we’d work at times to suit the museum and would tweak the proposal to suit the museum.
For a fair few years now Cardiff Life Model Collective, through Andy’s contact with Harry, have been working with the great Harry Holland who has private sketching sessions two or three times a week at his studio in Cardiff.
e loosely organised a meetup in London and Andy and Kate took in four exhibitions and were joined by others from Wales for a couple of them.
