Mother Friendly Life Drawing
Sunday 29th September | 10.30am-12noon | Top Studio, Exeter Phoenix | £5.50
In partnership with Mothers Who Make Exeter & Exeter Phoenix
Mother and artist Hester Berry pilots a friendly, untutored life drawing class open to mothers with children of any age. As will all MWM events children welcome to join in, play, sleep, but the class is adult centred. This offers makers professional and/or passionate a chance to try something new, or to get back to a creative process which many mothers struggle to make time for. The model will do a couple of long poses, allowing artists to interrupt their drawing at any point without missing short poses. Although this session is untutored, help and advice is available for anyone wanting to improve their drawing skills. Paper, pencils and charcoal are provided, with boards on a first-come-first-served basis. Do bring your own materials if you prefer.
Mothers Who Make is a growing national initiative aimed at supporting mothers who are artists - professional and/or passionate – writers, painters, actors, dancers, musicians, film-makers… every kind of maker is welcomed, and every kind of mother. MWM Exeter runs a peer support meeting at Exeter Phoenix the last Thursday of every month.
