IF YOU ARE A STUDENT
We are running a special class at Manchester School of Art (MMU) student Union this Friday the 21st at 7:30. If anybody attends the special event, they can attend one of our normal classes for half price! To book see link below
Look forward to seeing you!
Well as predicted this week’s Life Drawing class went swimmingly. Not that it was too hard to predict with two highly experienced models on duty. There were lots of really interesting poses, and several of them of technically difficult I would never ask models to do them! Thanks to Adam and Oksana.
Our models from a variety of backgrounds (as do our attendees!) Oksana is among other things a Kinesiology practitioner, and gave a brief overview at the end of class, details can be found on her site http://www.oksanashealthkinesiology.co.uk.
Example from this week’s class
After last week’s success with Oksana and Chloe we are having two models again this week. This time Oksana will be returning with Adam. So a male/female combination. It may be the last pairing of models for a while, so make it if you can !
Well now the Boiler has been fixed it I certainly warmer during the class. And The Edge has restated their Open Mike sessions after the class.
So you just have to wander down the stairs for Live Music afterwards !
Oksana and Chloe were our models last week, Oksana has worked with us before, but it was Chloe’s fist time with us. and a many of you know I am probably more nervous than the model when it is the first time working with us., but Chloe had worked elsewhere and it showed, they were both excellent.
While the attendance figures are still high we have once again booked two models this week !
Some people find it a real challenge tying to draw two models in twenty minutes, most decide to draw the nearest model, or the one that is in the bet light for them. Choices, Choices, Choices !
GOOD News !
The Heating at The Edge is now working !
The boiler has been failing now for years, with various radiators failing or giving out practically no heat.
But after successful fund raising The Edge have now replaced the Boiler, and the room is now ideal.
So you no longer have to dress as though you are a polar explorer.
This week we had Rob and Hope as models, they have both modelled before, but never together, and they worked brilliantly.
We can not do it every week, but this week we have arranged for two models to pose for the class. A Male and a Female. So get there early to get a good seat !
It seems that every week I am really pleased with the models. And it is simply because every week I am really impressed by some aspect of the performance. And it is often because they make what can be a tricky job look remarkable easy. But this week we were particularly blessed. Due to the high number of attendees recently we scheduled two models, as we has already booked one, we had to make sure they were complementary. However it wasn’t until they were in the same room we realised how complementary, they could easily pass for sisters, it was hard to believe they had never met before. It was one of the best evenings thanks to Emily and Molly.
This week is a good night to attend!
Recently we have had a large attendance. Which is fantastic, but it can mean some attendees can find some of the poses difficult to see. So this week we plan to have two models. Which means if you cannot see one you will be able to see the other !

It was an unusual evenings Life Drawing at The Edge. As I’m sure most of you realise we have the pleasure of drawing in a living theatre. Which by its nature puts on all sorts of events, including all types of plays. So we drew in the middle of a theatre set. Which made for an interesting spectacle.
Ella was our model for the evening, it was her first time working with us, so it would certainly have been memorable !
