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 £10pp 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.

Glamourman!

The Little Man Coffee Company

£10.00

You know, page 3, fashion, top shelf... glamour... Ever thought what a man might look like in the same pose? Well, in true 'Guerrilla Girls' style we have a man who is happy to pose - pout and all :) This is a fun session but one that we would like you to think on - what is it about glamour that makes substituting a male for a female strangely hilarious and not at all 'sexy'? This opens up a range of gender and sexualisation issues that we can have a chat about as the session progresses. • What we'll do Drop in, no need to book, life drawing session that is two hours long, costs £10pp £7.50 student/unwaged ( unless you're a Cardiff Uni student - see https://www.cardifflifemodel.co.uk/moans/cardiff-student-union/ ) and in a wonderfully relaxed environment - go improve your drawing skills and meet some South Wales artists too :) • What to bring Sketchpad and pencil • Important to know There will be a naked person in the room
