About the Tuesday Event:
It’s 2 hours of poses of different lengths:
3 x 2 minute warm up poses,
1 x 5 minute poses
1 x 10 minutes poses
1 x 15 minute poses.
1 x longish pose of whatever is left on the clock.
Then there will be a 15 minute tea-break (get your kettles at the ready!) where we can chat and connect with members.
The second hour starts with a crazy 10 second dash for 2 minutes. Then back to 2 minutes then straightaway into 3 longer poses.
Due to the raised issues of privacy of live streaming nudity and/or partial nudity we are observing strict rules about codes of conduct.
The fees are on the eventbrite site. There’s an earlybird price and a standard price. This covers both hours The link and password will be emailed to you so you can click from your computer. We’ll cover the eventbrite fees so there won’t be any hidden charges for you.
Important PRIVACY ISSUES:
I have been asked by the models that certain stipulations are adhered to:
- There must be NO SCREENSHOTS/CAPTURE VIDEO OR DIGITAL OR ANALOGUE RECORDING. I must ask you to keep your video streaming so I can monitor the situation. Anyone not doing this will be booted off. This is important. Keep any recording to paper (unless you’re using a digital drawing tablet/pen)
- some models may choose to wear masks – life modelling via the internet brings a certain amount of privacy issues compared to that of a session in person with a limited number of participants.
- some models have asked for the session kept to the regular participants and that is for me to manage, unless it’s an artist/student that you know will want to come along.
To that end, I must ask you to keep your video on. You can hide your video ‘rectangle’ from yourself, but keep your video running. If I find anyone breaking these stipulations, they’ll be booted off the session. Harsh, I know. But there are privacy issues here that are different to in-person life drawing events. Similarly, we also don’t allow recording or photography in those sessions either. Anyone found to be doing so will be asked to leave.
So far we’ve had good responses from the participants and models, and I’m really looking forward to getting us connected with life drawing. Who knows? It maybe a way of growing your own network of artists all around the world.
See you on the livestream!
