This new year is the 90th anniversary of the birth of our collective’s favourite artist Alphonse Mucha, and we shall celebrate this iconic artist with AMC spring Sunday session at LARA on March 31st!
It will feature models Carla and Manko as the beflowered spring sprites, and the smoking cigarette paper ad girls from Mucha’s enchanting artwork.
Alphonse Mucha needs no introduction – he produced a flurry of paintings, posters, advertisements and book illustrations in what was termed initially “The Mucha Style” but became known as Art Nouveau. Mucha’s works frequently featured beautiful young women in flowing, vaguely Neoclassical-looking robes, often surrounded by lush flowers which sometimes formed halos behind their heads. In contrast with contemporary poster makers he used pale pastel colors.
So bring your pastels, toned paper, and join our models to create a fitting tribute to this artist.
(We will also have a selection of free paper and materials courtesy of our sponsor, GreatArt shop).
(By the way, our first Mucha tribute session two years ago was extremely popular with our followers and produced gorgeous and inspired artwork. We expect this event will sell out well in advance, so don’t hesitate to get your ticket – this session is strictly limited to 30 attendees)
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.
