What we're about

This group is for anyone who likes to draw. Unlike other artists like musicians, actors or dancers... people who like to create drawings often do so alone. Once finished they tend to hide their sketch pad somewhere and few people get the pleasure of seeing their work. There's nothing wrong with that but it could also be a fun social activity just like it was when we were toddlers in art class.
All levels and styles are welcome and you could use any medium you like (pencils, charcoal, crayons etc.). We meet weekly in a public place like a coffee-shop or a park. Then you draw anything you like. It could be a bowl of fruit, a person modelling or a dog nearby. There are no teachers or prizes. Just sketching and friends having a wee blether.

Sunday Urban Sketching Near Home

Needs a location

In this Sunday's meeting, you are invited to sketch near or inside your home. Could be a nice quiet spot in the neighbourhood, a garden, a balcony, near a window or anywhere you feel comfortable drawing (you know your own terrain best and how to do it safely in accordance with guidelines). The idea is to find and bring out the interesting and beautiful things we can easily miss when going about in our daily lives. Start at 12 noon and at 2pm we'll regroup online on Zoom and show each other our work. We'll post the online meeting details closer to date. *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-* Zoom meeting details: Topic: Sunday urban sketching near home Time: Jul 12,[masked]:00 London Join Zoom Meeting https://us02web.zoom.us/j/82818868131?pwd=ZGRRNmxrNXd0UThKOTJoTmR0bUl3Zz09 Meeting ID:[masked] Password:[masked] *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-* What is Urban Sketching? The idea came from the original group in San Francisco who created a manifesto that was copied around the globe in all major cities: Urban Sketchers Manifesto 1. We draw on location, indoors or out, capturing what we see from direct observation. 2. Our drawings tell the story of our surroundings, the places we live and where we travel. 3. Our drawings are a record of time and place. 4. We are truthful to the scenes we witness. 5. We use any kind of media and cherish our individual styles. 6. We support each other and draw together. 7. We share our drawings online. 8. We show the world, one drawing at a time. Let's do this!

S02: All The Young Nudes - Online Life Drawing Club (LIVE!)

Cabaret Voltaire

£2.50

Join us on Monday nights for Season 2 of our online life drawing club. There will be music, laughter and poses in HD. No experience required - all welcome. Let's hang together online and create. S02: Ep 02 >[masked] | Chloē | Glasgow, UK Tickets >> https://www.crowdcast.io/e/atyn-s02ep02 Meetup 50% off: qlb215 If we haven't already met - hello! We are All The Young Nudes Life Drawing Club, based in Glasgow, Scotland. The club is run by Joanna Susskind of Toad's Caravan, a small creative agency Jo launched back in 2008. Never tried life drawing before? Art classes seem kinda intimidating, don't they. You've come to the right place! ATYN is life drawing - for everyone and anyone. You need no prior experience, just an open mind and a willingness to give it a go. No one will judge your work, nor ask you to show it - that's up to you. We love to see it, if you do want to share. Work in progress and progression drawings are so great to see. Our offline sessions are hosted in bars and clubs around the UK, always encouraging people to give sketching a go, no matter what their experience level. We encourage the odd glass of wine or pint to help calm your nerves...we also play great music to help get your creative juices flowing. Sounds like fun, right?! Our online sessions are not too different. These are not Zoom classes, so you're not going to be on-screen. Expect a new model each week, poses in HD (the poses will be well lit with studio lights or natural light), some audio tuition and chatter from Joanna, a live soundtrack plus you can submit your work for our Vision On gallery. The sessions are £5 a head, or slightly less if you subscribe to ATYN on Patreon (Patreon.com/alltheyoungnudes). As soon as the weekly broadcast ends, the session is available as a replay at the same link. You can find all our previous sessions on our website - ATYN.co.uk - where you can watch them for £3 and play them as many times as you like, pausing if you want to spend longer on a specific pose. Our Monday night sessions are focussed on ensuring you get 2 hours of sketching out of your system. Lots of fun, fast paced and friendly. We will be providing more taught sessions and advice for beginners in the form of Masterclasses and shorter tutorials on our website. Keep an eye open for these! _________________________ SKETCHING SCHEDULE 6.45pm - 7pm: Pre-event, music, animation, meet and greet in live chat 7.00pm - Introduction from Joanna & our model(s) 7.05pm: First Half Life Drawing (2, 5 and 10 minute poses) 8.00pm: Break/Gallery of Your Work 8.20pm - 9pm: 2nd Half Life Drawing Session (2 x 20 minute poses) 9pm - HERO POSE (bonus pose) For more information and FAQs visit >> www.atyn.co.uk Subscribe to our Spotify Playlist - Music To Sketch To - here: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/32jMGRsE8D0whHC7VXZpMj?si=qKivT0bgRVCQ6w6HEHdKdQ Drawing every week?

Online life drawing // Reconfigure at home

Edinburgh

What is Reconfigure, when it's at home? This has been the title to my 'About' page for years and - well... we are about to find out! Sharpen those pencils, get that wine out, make yourselves comfy, download ZOOM, and get ready to tag your drawings @reconfigure_lifedrawing and #reconfigurative on Insty so I can pool and repost your collective efforts and bring us all together despite our dispersal! The session will be two hours with a 20 min break in the middle. Pose lengths will vary between 3 to 20 minutes. We'll be coming to you live from the models' living rooms. Most sessions will be themed. I use Citizen Ticket for my ticketing (they plant trees with your booking fees): you can see our schedule and reserve tickets via Citizen Ticket here: https://www.citizenticket.co.uk/organiser/reconfigure/ During the session, please keep your mics and videos off - this seems to improve image quality. I'll make a playlist which I will add to my Spotify - just search 'Reconfigure Life Drawing' for your usual soundtrack to sketch to, or, play your own music of course. Please refrain from taking screen shots. £2 for the penniless; £3.50 for the not quite destitute and £5 for those still on salaries. If there's more than one of you to a screen, please consider paying however many times. BONUS COLLABORATION with Drawing Life in Glasgow Buy a ticket for this session and Hugo's in Glasgow the next evening, i.e. Thursday night;[masked]pm, for a combined price of £8. Look out for an email from me ([masked]) with a link to join Hugo's class! I'll send that out on Thursday at 6pm. I hope everyone is keeping well amidst all this, and finding the positive side to a new way of being; slower, more introspective, and more conscientious. Looking forward to sharing this journey alongside you. xx Topaz

Urban Sketching at National Museum of Scotland

National Museum of Scotland

Our regular Sunday drawing at the National Museum of Scotland at Chambers Street. It's central and there is the option of going around the museum with lots of things to draw: dinosaurs, ancient relics, sculptures, tourists etc. Meet at the Balcony Cafe on the 3rd floor up the escalator at noon. We'll have our sketch pads and drawing stuff on the table. We generally stay at least a couple of hours but some often stay drawing for longer. Posting a picture or scan of your drawings onto the page is by no means compulsory but highly welcomed. What better way for us to remember the evening? The way to do it is to go back to the event page and you will find an icon under the event title which says "upload". Click on it and then follow instructions. But please don't feel pressured to post your drawing. The most important thing is to relax and have fun :) What is Urban Sketching?
