Online Drawing Class with Spin Spin Sophie! Wednesday 15th July
This promises to be special, and to accommodate Sophie’s skills we are extending the class from 2hours, to two and a half hours. Starting off with a series of fast energetic poses (gesture drawings), before finishing with more sedate poses. This will really test your creativity!
Spin Spin Sophie is a training contortionist and performance artist from Edinburgh.
Sophie says: “As an artist who’s sole form of expression is movement, I was thrilled to discover the world of life modelling less than a year ago and have not looked back since. I love to challenge myself and the artist in creating twisted, bent, distorted shapes – prepare for some fast and interesting poses!”
Sophie will be heading to Portugal in September to begin her professional circus training at INAC Circus School (@inac.circusschool). You can follow her training on her Instagram profile: @spinspinsophie.
