Life Drawing

Picasso - The Blue Nude
An early start this year - so dust off your pencils and sketchbooks if you haven't been using them and take advantage of the Autumn weather and our first nude model.  Khadija has been selected for our first session and you can see her photo in the Artist Models section of this blog.  She is a total professional (as are all our selected models) and will be posing on the 30th April from 9.30 am until 12.30.

Until the weather cools in June/July, we will be selecting nude models; clothes will be the order of the day in the depths of winter.

The cost remains the same - R60 per session which includes a cup of tea and biscuits.  Please contact Jinty on 021 762 2426 - email jinty@cybersmart.co.za or Lawrie on 021 438 9512 - email leve@kingsley.co.za.  Make sure you book your place as space is limited!

Schedule:  April 30, May 7 and 14, June 11 and 18
Where:  The Portuguese Club in Rugby

Gus Kennedy tallk

Gus at the Podium
At our monthly Thursday meeting, Gus Kennedy, owner of the Italian Art Shop in Rondebosch, gave us a really insightful talk on "Paint - what is it?"

He talked about the properties of the various paint qualities, the importance of quality canvases and what makes a good canvas, brushes and how they're made and a host of information that we never knew and can make a difference in our painting lives.
An amazing prize to win

And to top it all, Skye had put together a wonderful give-away package to one lucky member, and that was Paul Webb.  Lucky man Paul!  Enjoy.
