About the Event
We will be lucky for a few weeks to be able to draw a really good male model with plenty of experience from Italy. We'll be drawing at our best and to make sure we have the best experience as Artists or as model, we won't give the model's identity but will give you the tools to keep him and them in the future happier than ever before. We will have a virtual Kitty on the day for you to donate and/or a virtual artist group to join where the model will keep you informed and give you modeling time just to you so you can draw them virtually, in an Artistic way. 15 years ago I tripled the minimum wage for all UK Life models on a cold blue morning, raised it again and again recently to £20/h but negociable obviously. Trying to save them from exploitation of those who charge them to work while pulling the strings. Boycott is the word. This is going to be a great class with good camera and lighting.
Whatever I do since 2003 is Free to Nurses, Postmen and women, Fire Brigade, NHS people and definitely is even more now?!
Anyone should know that the only way to keep models safe is to agree not to grab any photos or video while our classes are happening and to show some of your drawings on meetup or email them to me on eukart at msn dt com. This will bring us good luck and also keep the witches away :). The only way to show that you approve with keeping models safe is to rsvp, to show that you agree, that is if you are coming to draw, while staying home with other friends and family doing creative Art together.
Please create your Art space, all yours, so you can enjoy those classes whenever you'll want in the next few months, years.
As soon as you read this please download the Zoom.us app on your chosen device you'll use and sign up to the Life Drawing Network, that takes a minute so you can purchase tickets at www.thelifedrawingnetwork.com/live-events. You'll be sent an email with your registration if you haven't yet and a direct link that you'll use around 5 mins before the class start or whenever you want to join.
While we'll show our drawings at the end of the class, if I tell you to keep your drawing because we could have it on our Coronavirus exhibition page, please keep it safe, frame it, spray it etc... ready to be sold, shipped so we can raise money without being a Charity ourselves and offer it to our NHS working force. I've run/organized Celebrity Life Drawing classes in the past to raise money for cancer research and a few other charities(Greg Rutherford, Jody Marsh...) I am always ready for raised money that's really going to those in need or trying to save lives. Please let your local Art teacher also waiting, parents, Friends, HR managers who have to invite staff members, managers, housemates, good neighbours socially distanced, know about this and invite them or ask them to invite their people. Finally what I personally like about online classes is that I can finally do what I was trying to do for 17 years (OH no!), which is to spend most of the class helping the beginners with now Audio tuition only for those who want to keep the sound up. I'll also share my Spotify playlist with you guys to keep the inspiration/feelings as creative as possible, like good old days. Well not that Old?!
