Nexus life drawing

I went to Nexus life drawing this Tuesday. I have not drawn anything for quite sometime so found it quite challenging but one of the most rewarding and exciting things I have ever done. The class is directed by the lovely artist, Liz Gaunt,who breaks up the sounds of scratchy sketches with nods of helpful advice. Liz directs the cafe into a soft haven of light as the budding artists slowly dot the basement cafe with a humming bubble of creative chat. The class is accompanied by mediative music, a basket of charcoal and a relaxed, welcoming ambience. The model was proffessional and posed in multiple angles for short 1 minute intervals at first to 2, 20 minute periods after a short caffiene break. (Although this may alternate according to the session.)
 It is on every other Tuesday 7.15-9pm on Dale, Street Manchester, see you there. (Oh and of course see you at the Craftivism event I'm helping run with Duncan and Sara from Crafternoon this Tuesday 6pm-9pm)
