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 already manage successful weekly life drawing sessions in Cardiff and Newport but would like to use this group to expand into half and full day life drawing opportunities. The greater the reach and the knowledge of who and how many will be attending a day session will enable us to plan in more or less models and so make these more expensive to run sessions financially viable.

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 in fact for all sessional workers and to offer life drawing evenings at just £10pp (£7.50pp student/unwaged) inclusive of basic materials. 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.
