November will be music time. Time to draw musicians and dancers while they are performing live. Drawing movement and the invisible. Challenging? No. Fun! Come and draw with an empty mind and let you be carried out by the sounds, rythmes and feelings in the atmosphere.
Monday 3th – Ballarina Dancer – Melissa Higham - KNT Dance Works School
Monday 10th – Contemporary Ensemble Music – Out of the box collective – Viola and fingerstyle guitar.
Monday 17st – Brazilian Carnival Dance – Naomi Nao Mi – Sambahia Dance
Monday 24th – Kora Musician – Bij Fall Tika
Next Monday at our life drawing sessions at Islington Mill we carry on with our theme BLACK SKINS. This time with Congolese ethnic background, and a dancer. This is Naomi Nao Mi.
Monday 7-9pm at Islington Mill, James St. M3 5HW £6
This October we are lucky to have black models with different ethnic backgrounds posing for us. This give us the opportunity to explore their different and beautiful skin’s shades and body’s shapes.
- 13th October – female with Afro-Caribbean roots
- 20th October – female of Congolese ethnic background
- 27th October – male of Ethiopian descendancy
Remember, we moved our sessions at Islington Mill to Mondays. Same time 7-9pm and same price £6.
Due to many core members not being able to attend next Monday 6th of October, we’ve decided to cancel the session.
Remember, we are not on Tuesdays anymore. If you’d like to draw on Tuesdays come to nexus cafe. We are there the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month from 7.30pm-9pm. Same deal. People bring their own materials. Cost £5.
We’ll be then every Monday at Islington Mill from 7-9pm starting from Monday 13th.
This last Tuesday in September will be the last Tuesday we do our life drawing sessions at Islington Mill. We’ve moved these to Mondays!
We’ll be now on every Monday 7-9pm at the Mill’s club space so we can be up to 17 people. So forward this email to anyone you think might be interested.
The programme this Autumn and Winter 2014 will be exceptional, with many revivals and new formats.
