Expect daring and bold poses. A great opportunity to experiment with figurative distorsions such elongation and deformities … we’ll elude the sexual openness of some of Schiele’s portraits … for now 😀 hahhaha!

If I haven’t seen you yet, happy new year 2020. I mean … in 2019 incredible things happened in Studio Bee. We got performing a flamenco dancer, a cople of Mayan men and the best performance so far by transgeder Joy Hateley. Some people tells me that it would be difficult to beat some of these event but I don’t think so 😉 hahhaha! I don’t need a granma as they say hahhahah!
I do not want to say much, as I like going with the flow … but ideas … quite a few !
Last Sunday of last year we run a session I had being meaning to run for a long time and it was a success. The session was run in complete darkness in ATMA, the club below Studio Bee, with just a spot light on the model. People had to come with head torches, bike lights or the like to illuminate their paper or canvases, a bit like recreating old master painters such as Rembrandt, which dark self-portraits he’s famous for. Well, people has asked me to repeat this experience and this will happen on the last Sunday of January.
If interested, bring your favourite paints, inks, charcoals and don’t forget, obviously, a little light. Basic materials and light refreshments wll be provided too. If interested, please, book in advance via the PayPal’s link below. It is just £16 if you pay before Thursday 23rd of January and, afterwards, £18 paid on the door.
I’ll be running long poses sessions every last Sunday of the month as well as Tuesdays for short poses, so if I do not see in this occassion I see you sometime.
This December we’ll be exploring those bodies which gender is undefined. Because these people are also people and should have the same rights than straight people have; because these people deserve the same respect than everybody else; Life Drawing+ has invited them to be themselves and tell their stories in Studio Bee.

The studio is a bit tricky to find if your first time. It’s at the top floor above The Peer Hat bar.
This will be the 3rd of our Dark Matters life drawing series. It would never was gonna to happen if I had not seen a couple of Mayans walking in the streets of Manchester last week. They are from Chiapas and though they speak Spanish their main language is K’iche. This is the Bat language, they told me, one among the different 30 Mayan languages in the American continent. It is a language that is based on a culture around darkness, a culture that like the bats, can see in the dark. It explores the underworld in order to understand the superworld. As they say, we are only in this world for tiny fraction of time …
@Ritual Maya are a collective of musicians, singers and dancers that take their own culture to create performances. We are collaborating together to bring a session where performance will creat space for people to draw their incredible indian American bodies with their so characteristic face and hair features and tattoos, jewellery, masks, their ancient instruments and ropes.

For our last Sunday’s life drawing of the year we’ll be drawing in a black studio with just a spot light on the model… I advise that you bring a dark coloured paper and white and other light colours. It will be like drawing or painting the negative of a photograph. Below some examples just for some inspiration.
Poses will range from 5, 15, 45min and 1.5h. Feel free to bring your own easles and materials. We’ll have our usual white paper and pencils.
