Tues 20th Feb: Riot Grrrl! Life drawing with AMC
Finally! A much anticipated multi-model life drawing theme with a riotous soundtrack! Art Model Collective celebrates the Riot Grrrls in music. February 2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the Representation of the People Act 1918, in which *some* women got to vote for the first time in the UK. To celebrate this key step in the process towards female emancipation and universal suffrage, we are hailing the irrepressibly female spirit with a Riot Grrrl life drawing session! Riot grrrl is an underground subculture movement originating in the early 1990s, organised to end ageism, homophobia, racism, sexism and, especially, physical and emotional violence against women and girls, through music, DIY ethic, zines, art, political action, and activism. Our models will embrace each other in pure feminist consciousness and punk style as much as the original Riot Grrrls embraced their guitars, voice, and grassroots politics. All levels welcome Hosted by Jason Atomic Admission on the door: £15 (As usual, we welcome other life models who have worked with AMC before to come and draw free of charge) We'll have some free art materials for spontaneously visiting artists, but as always, please bring your favourite tools. Chairs and drawing boards provided, some easels and table spaces available. Please join us for a drink afterwards! We're a friendly bunch of like-minded creatives and enjoy chatting, brainstorming, getting feedback and swapping ideas!
