9th May - Life Drawing Tribute to Alphonse Mucha
Underdog Gallery present a life drawing session dedicated to MayDay maidens, spring sprites and beflowered beauties of Alphonse Mucha. Mucha needs no introduction - he produced a flurry of paintings, posters and illustrations in what was termed initially The Mucha Style but became known as Art Nouveau. In contrast with contemporary poster makers he used pale pastel colours. Poses and costumes will be inspired by Mucha's beautiful young women in flowing, vaguely Neoclassical-looking robes, often surrounded by lush flowers which sometimes formed halos behind their heads. Admission on the door: £15 Time: 7-9:30pm
All levels welcome. We'll have some free art materials for spontaneously visiting artists, but as always, please bring your favourite tools. This time, we recommend pastels and toned paper!
Chairs and drawing boards provided, some easels and table spaces available.
Please join us for a drink afterwards at the gallery. We're a friendly bunch of like-minded creatives and enjoy chatting, brainstorming, getting feedback and swapping ideas! Register your attendance on a Facebook page here
