Last Sunday Life Drawing… for the summer!

On the 22nd of July will be the last life drawing Sunday session of the summer so, please, come and join us for this 5 hours full of long poses, a Spanish meal served with cold Sangria, and music from all the regions of the Iberian Peninsula and South America. And of course… I am looking for an Iberian model!

This is the plan for the day:

  • 11am – 2 x 1 min poses
  • 11.05am – 1 x 5 min pose
  • 11.10am – 1 x 10 min pose
  • 11.20pm- 1 x 30 min
  • 11.50pm – TEA BREAK
  • 12pm – 1 x 1 hour
  • 1pm – LUNCH
  • 2PM –  2h pose (with a 10 min tea break at 3pm
  • 4pm – end

We haven’t decided about the meal but perhaps we are in between paella or fideuá. I wouldn’t mind a Gazpacho as well! But I love fideuá. It is like a paella but with smaller size macarroni pasta… and can be served with allioli if one is up for it! Of course there will be a Vegan option and all will be served with Mediterranean salad, Catalan bread and cold Sangria.

If you want to come, please book before next Friday 20th of July. You can pay in cash next Tuesday or via PayPal in the following link:

Full price £30


Students and concessions £25 (includes lunch)

Lunch not included £25

Looking forward to it !
