The Sunday PM Art Group is held on the second and fourth Sunday of every month.
The second Sunday is given over to portraiture. Here we have the model hold the same pose for the full session. We take our time to learn about our subject, to study their features and map out a likeness.
The fourth Sunday is life-drawing where we study the human form using a life-model, with fast sketches (1–3 mins) which then extend to longer studies as the afternoon progresses (20–30 mins). We like to have discussions during the breaks about interesting topics such as politics, art, football, art and also art. Some weeks we will focus on particular body parts, such as the face, the neck, back, etc… These are fun and help us to understand aspects about gesture and how the underlying structures (muscle and bone) inform us as artists.
We work in any and all media, there are no rules! We learn from each other (some of our members are classically trained) and also have discussions regarding drawing from life, the features of the face or what makes a good portrait!
We are a friendly bunch and always welcome new members when they are able to join us. We foster a supportive, collegial environment, where the emphasis is on friendship, creativity, and having a nice time on a Sunday afternoon of art-making.
NB: Photos of life models posing nude are not permitted.Please bring your own art materials, a drink and a snack if required plus cleaning gear for your area. The CAW room is equipped with tables, easels, donkeys, small tables and chairs. Please arrive at least 15 minutes early to help set up. We also appreciate help with packing up after the session. We look forward to seeing you in the studio.
