LAST LIFE DRAWING OF THE YEAR WITH A SPECIAL

This Tuesday 13th of December is the last life drawing session of the year before the winter break. We’ll celebrate it by bringing a live art performance to studio bee devised so we can draw it. Like being in the theatre and being able to draw its carachters and props with the only difference that the character will freeze for us to draw.

DRAWING PERFORMANCE: > A TRANSGENDER STORY <
We have a rare opportunity to experience and draw the performance ‘A Transgender Story,’ by performance artist Joey Hateley. It’s a moving account of stories across the artist’s life with colourful props and gender subversive figures between 5-20 minutes length, provided for us to illustrate.

Cost £8/£6 (students and concessions) including materials, mulled wine, miced pies and bailyes’ cream. Let’s celebrate!

Start 7.30pm ends 9.30pm at Studio Bee above the KRAAK Gallery, top floor of redbrick mill  in the tiny alley behind the HULA bar in Stevenson Square M1 1BE.

Blurred Identities: Chrissy

I know that I said we had this week ‘DRAWING PERFORMANCE >A TRANSGENDER STORY< with performance artist Joey Hateley, but I got it wrong. This Tuesday we have Chrissy who’s gender also breaks with traditional boundaries.

She’ll be posing nude for the first part of the session and after the break she’ll be wearing some of her favourite clothes. Come and meet her and draw her in her different guisses.
