What we're about

We are a group of life models that work across South Wales with schools, colleges, individual artists, university student groups and at our own weekly life drawing sessions.

We are also a group of artists that wish to express themselves through figurative work or to hone our drawing skills at drop in life drawing sessions.

We are committed to continue to run our model group as a collective, to continue to campaign for fair pay and working conditions for life models and to offer life drawing evenings at just £15pp inclusive of basic materials and a drink upon arrival.

The group has two further broad goals; to encourage a better understanding of and so acceptance of the human form in all of it's diverse shapes, ages and colours as an urgently needed antidote to the photo shopped images the media sells us and to encourage networking and social interaction amongst artists, photographers, models and others in South Wales.

Upcoming events (4+)

Draw The Artist

Little Man Studio

£15.00

TO BOOK YOUR SPOT ON THIS EVENT PLEASE USE OUR WEBSITES CHECKOUT - https://lifedrawingwales.co.uk/event-directory/

It’s a performance, but not by us!

We don’t book in a model for this session and on the evening we ask for those artists present to model for us in an as bare as you dare role swap challenge.

Those drawing get to draw a range of bodies over the course of the evening (we average 7 volunteers) and those accepting the challenge get to experience life on the other side of the easel.

If you intend to model please book your spot as usual and we will provide you with credit to use against a future session, so effectively you get one session of life drawing with Cardiff Life Models for free 🙂

There has never been a more gloomy time to resurrect the fear of childhood, you know, ghosts and ghouls and monsters, and have them populate the adult minds landscapes but to offer up some hope in the form of ‘V’.

We can and will defeat the men in suits.
This two part Life Drawing Performance evening includes a reprise of the shenanigans of October 31st, an historical scene snatched from the gallows of January 1606 and some graphic novel storytelling that enthuses and fills all with hope for a new dawn…
