This Thursday 6th September is a chance to meet the Spirited Bodies team if you would like to model at one of our events. We will be at The Leather Bottle, 538 Garratt Lane, SW17 0NY from 7 – 9pm. The nearest overground station is Earlsfield and the nearest underground station is Tooting Broadway. We will occupy a table and place a ‘Spirited Bodies’ sign on it. You may recognise us from the photos in; https://spiritedbodies.com/2012/08/25/mall-reunion/
When I was catching up with Caron Clarke on Saturday as I modelled for her group in Crystal Palace, she showed me some of her beautiful water colours.
Caron runs weekly long pose sessions with a model usually returning for 2 – 3 weeks, on Saturday afternoons at her studio in Crystal Palace. She will soon be resuming her more experimental weekly classes, now on a Friday evening, from October she expects. She tutors at this class in which she specialises in taking artists/students out of their comfort zone and showing them a new way for which they are ultimately grateful! (See this post from last year; https://spiritedbodies.com/2011/06/15/mountain-of-strength/) NB Caron no longer operates from Antenna Studios but from her new space at Gipsy Hill Workshops – http://www.caronclarkeartistandlifedrawing.com/
We will be answering questions and giving advice to new models at the meeting on Thursday. We are mainly preparing at this stage for the October 20 event at Battersea Arts Centre for which we have a requirement to find models connected with the borough of Wandsworth. In addition we are particularly looking for female models and there will be a women only life modelling preparation workshop coming up.
Men will be taking part in the event too, but we do hear considerably more from male applicants.
