It was another special evening…

Well it was another special evening at Chorlton Alternative Arts. We had two models working with us, they are good friends, and it showed. It is a real challenge drawing two people in such a short space of time, most (but not all!), find it much more difficult. The big advantage is, there is always a observation standpoint that suits. For some people it was their first time attending, and I hope the challenge was not too much for them!

Drop In Class….

We are now well and truly back in the swing of things. It is nice to see many of the regulars are continuing to attend this year. As it is a drop in class, some people attend most weeks, some decide to attend every other week, and some just on an ad-hoc basis. It is also great to see new faces, the best thing is watching people improve as the weeks go by. Rakee was our model this week, and once more she was great.

Back to Normal (almost!)..

If there is any such thing as a normal class then we are almost back to one after the Christmas break. It is always strange the first class back after New Year. Lots of people choose that week to try something new, so it is a bit crowded. But this week, there were just about the right amount of people. Enough so there is lots of variety, but not so many that there are people that can’t see. And it was warm!  Rosa was our model for the evening, and she was brilliant as always.


Last week was certainly a start to the New Year! There are always new people at the start of the New Year, so we expect a crowd, but it was compounded by the fact there was a Stage Set in the studio. This is normally a good thing, it provides variety for attendees, but it also takes up room. So last week was slightly crowded. And highly unusually, the model wanted all the heating turned off! As we consider the model the most important person in the room, we were obliged to turn heating off. So Charlotte was quite comfortable, and everybody else had to keep their coats on! It will be warmer this week PROMISE!

Thank You!

It was a quiet and enjoyable end to the year at The Edge. Thank you everybody that attended any session throughout the year (they must number the hundreds), hope you had an excellent Xmas and are looking forward to the New Year. Becca was our model for the evening, she is now heading off to India for a holiday break, and I’m sure we would all like to thank her and all our models for all their efforts over the last year.

A Rare Occurence

Well this week was not a week to have missed. We had two models, Adam and Hope, both highly experienced. They wrote their own script and prepared their poses, so the event became highly theatrical. And it seemed their hard work was really rewarded, to me at least it seemed that many people produced work right at the top of their game. It was one of those rare occurrences, and I was really pleased to be a part of it.
