The animators meet most every week and this small group, usually about 6-8 people, always come up with some great sketches. Well, they should, shouldn’t they. After all, they are all full time artists 🙂
Yes, we’ve been around for 10 years! That means about 1000 life drawing events delivered directly by ourselves and many many more delivered to individual artists and schools and colleges from Chepstow in the east to Swansea in the west, Cardiff in the south to Bala in the north…
We regard Harry as a pinnacle of figurative art currently practising in the UK. His instagram account is simply stunning so do follow him! His commitment to representing the human form in his imaginative and excellent and recognisable fashion is a testament to what can be achieved following decades of practice. His understanding of who came before and where he wishes to be is sharp and focused.
Really great to see everyone sharpening their pencils and getting stuck in with a healthy drawing practice for 2020. Always inspiring to see the progress of returning artists; a conscious cultivation that initiates growth. It becomes a form of meditation – a kind of routine that builds into a personal portfolio of growth, a kind of creative chronology.
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 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.
