Art Model Collective are thrilled to announce that we are starting a collaboration with LARA, bringing you your favourite and much-missed Sunday sessions at London Atelier Of Representational Arts in Clapham North.
This series of life drawing events pays tribute to the RA exhibition ‘Klimt / Schiele: Drawings from the Albertina Museum, Vienna’ to mark the centenary of both artists’ deaths. Our inspiration comes from the key drawings and themes of the exhibition, such as portraiture, the human figure and eroticism.
This time AMC models will host a tribute to our favourite artist, Egon Schiele (on December 16 this will be followed by a homage to Klimt).
With his signature graphic style, embrace of figural distortion, and bold defiance of conventional norms of beauty, Egon Schiele was one of the leading figures of Austrian Expressionism.
AMC’s distorted yet elegant interactive poses, inspired by Schiele’s striking and still-shocking images, have been a hit with our life drawing crowd for several years. We will be posing together in a combination of long and short, clothed and nude poses, set to a specially curated soundtrack.
Schiele is famous not only for his psychologically and erotically charged oeuvre but for his intriguing biography: his licentious lifestyle marked by scandal, notoriety, and a tragically early death on 31 October 1918.
NB: Royal Academy exhibition ‘Klimt / Schiele: Drawings from the Albertina Museum, Vienna’ opens on 4 November 2018.
The collaboration between AMC and LARA has been brewing for a while now and is set to blow all traditions away, because finally, our dynamic collective can bring their own style, sparkle, vitality and glamour to the academic environment of the atelier!
This will be a truly unique blend of your beloved AMC events set in an inspiring academic environment. Taking inspiration from the sober and serious environment of the traditional classical atelier that is LARA, we shall see what artistic cocktail can be whipped up with our models at these relaxed, informal 3 hour Sunday afternoon sessions.
These sessions are untutored and open to every level of skill.
LARA provide easels, chairs and drawing boards.
We will have a selection of paper and free materials courtesy of GreatArt. Artists are encouraged to experiment with different media – varied charcoals, pastels, pencils, pens and even chunky markers.
The spaces are limited, tickets are on sale via EventBrite
