Life drawing ¦ Schiele's hands

19:00 - 21:00

 Facebook event page
1 Summerhall, EH9 1PL Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Get your wobbly lines and scratchy pencils out for this theme — focusing on the gestures of Schiele's agonised self portraits (not the masturbatory ones — this time anyway hehe (erp!)) with dreamy-dark haired model Max.

It's 7-9pm at Summerhall's Anatomy Lecture Theatre. On Wednesdays 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, or buy a ticket online to skip the queueue (really)*. 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!)

Did you know we run loads of sessions all over town? As well as these themed sessions, you can draw to a live musical accompaniment on:
Mondays at the Pianodrome studio at Custom House, *8-10pm* (doors 7.40) for £10/8. It's BYOB and materials are included — more info at Pianodrome: life drawing ¦ live music
and the last Tuesday of the month (the next one being on June 26th), 7-9pm again at Summerhall's Anatomy Lecture Theatre, again for £10/8 — more info at Life drawing x live music ¦ Rope work

And if you're under 25, you can enjoy subsidised sessions with Out of the Blueprint 2-3.30pm on the first Saturday of the month. More info under Life drawing at Print Jam.

And 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

Looking forward to welcoming you at some nude situation soon
Topaz and co xx

*if you've bought an online ticket we will save you a seat til 6.50pm after which we'll release your ticket to anyone waiting at the door.
