If you run a group of artists or have a group of friends that would like to organise a one off or regular life drawing event then please do be in touch with Andy – firstname.lastname@example.org – artistic nudes, it’s what we do 🙂
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.
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.
I first came across Turnip Starfish through Kat, an art tutor I have known for some time. The owner of the animation company, Nick, was teaching a first session of life drawing at Cardiff and the Vale and I think this was at the old campus near St Mellons.
Flatholm is an island situated a short distance from Cardiff Bay. It’s clearly visible from Penarth along with it’s sister island Steepholm. Andy booked sole use of the island for an art residential and some get away from it all fun for a weekend at the end of August 2015.
