Gesture poses with one of the best life models in town: Nicci. Big shapes and dynamic lines that carry you across and through the form; the 'doing poses'; the verbs of life modelling grammar.
Did you know, Reconfigure has begun in Leith now too?
Mondays at the Pianodrome studio at Custom House, *8-10pm* (doors 7.40), with a live improv [multi] piano accompaniment (sometimes more!), for £6-10 donation (as you can afford) with BYOB and a donations bar. Check the events tab for more info.
But back to these sessions…
Logistics: It's 7-9pm at Summerhall's Anatomy Lecture Theatre. Our models pose within a lightly themed set-up: nude enough to engage simply with the figure, yet embellished enough to explore the themed approach if inspiration strikes. It's £6 on the door, which opens at 6.40ish, or buy a ticket online to come to the front and skip the queue, tick yourself off, and get a good seat. It's chilled out drawing and tunes, with chilled bevvies from the bar. Or herb tea if you like. (Brownie points for bringing a keep cup!). There are materials to buy and borrow (including boards) and we welcome all ages and stages. If you need drawing advice just ask me (Topaz) (or whoever is sitting next to you- make a new friend!)
Sometimes we run extravanganza collaborations and tutored sessions with creatives from far and wide. Sometimes more, sometimes less experimental, always something new, different, surprising. Materials are included in the ticket price for these sessions, and I provide a bar (or tea station!) for additional tipples, and sometimes some nibbles to soak it all up. You can subscribe to the events to be notified of such happenings. Check out the full schedule at facebook.com/reconfigurative/events.
Looking forward to welcoming you at some nude situation soon
