The Canberra based Strathnairn Sculpture Group have moved in and become part of the QAS! Evening Sculpture and Life Drawing sessions take place every Wednesday at the QAS Gallery. Doors open at 5:30 to be ready for a 6:30pm start. Sessions are untutored.
i) Sculpture/drawing pose 6.30pm – 8.30pm – same pose for the 2 hrs – but everyone moves round the model as need be.
ii) Drawing: 8.30 – 9pm – model chooses 3 varied ten minute poses for us to draw from
iii) Clean-up & cup of tea – 9 – 9.30pm
Models alternate – female for 5 weeks, then male for 5 weeks (to our best intentions)
What to bring:
Please bring all your own paints/charcoal/paper. There are some boards that are available as well, and the use of a chair from the long gallery.
Please bring your own clay, a board to work on and tools you need. Also some cling-wrap to keep clay wet from week to week, and a spray bottle to wet it down as needed.There are 6 stands on wheels that you can use to work on- on first come basis. 3 of us have our own stands that suit our height.If you don’t have a stand, you could use a chair turned facing you to rest your board on.
There is a bit of shelf space in the back shed to keep your current sculpture on for the 5 sessions. But please take home at the end of that 5 weeks, so there is room for the following sculpture session to start again. This means that soft clay or wax does not have to be taken back and forth and risk some disaster on the road – except on the final trip home.
$15 per session – This covers the model, and QAS Gallery use – any extra goes into a ‘float’ for those sessions where there are not enough participants to cover the model/QAS cost.
At this stage no bookings are necessary. Please contact the coordinator, Jim Sullivan for further information:
