A rather excellent 3rd year film student studying at the University of South Wales, Anna Korecka, got in touch with us and after getting to know us and attending a few sessions of life drawing a plan began to hatch. A good while after our first contact Anna was back in touch and she had done an amazing thing, securing support from the BBC and winning one of four student documentary film slots!
Anna Korecka, a fine student filmmaker in her final year at The Atrium at The University of South Wales has worked with Andy and his team at Cardiff Life Model Collective and has made a short documentary film for BBC Wales
JJ is one of the organisers of the group and she attends mostly all Sunday and Tuesday sessions, on hand to stand in if a model gets delayed or can’t make it. On this occasion however she was planned in as it’s rare to get a no show nowadays, all Cardiff Life Models being the absolute essence of reliability 🙂
If you’d like to book a model for your life drawing session simply email Andy with your idea/plan/date etc and he’ll be in touch
So, I think if I messaged an individual or business six times in 11 hours, trying to sell them ‘stuff’, I think I could be accused of spamming them.
The proposed Cardiff Life Model Collective life drawing show, ‘Life Lines’, has been cancelled due to the intervention of a couple that I have endeavoured to help and support and who are currently claiming copyright infringement or something along those lines.
And what for? For a session with the lovely group of students at Merthyr College. They are first year Art Practice Degree students and this is there second life drawing session… EVER!
Yes, every Tuesday, apart from a couple of weeks at Christmas, we are at Little Man Coffee Company, that fine and ethical cafe space in the centre of Cardiff, for drop in, no need to book, life drawing.
It was measured drawing time, using eight bands across the paper and working with Andy’s average ‘seven and a half heads body’.
We have a fine team of walking leaders over at Wales Outdoors – https://www.meetup.com/Wales-Outdoors/- and a fine team of models and tutors here at Cardiff Life Model Collective.
