What has been happening?
Attic on a Sunday afternoon is now bustling. All sorts of things go on……. I will leave it at that!!!
We have some lovely models coming in just now. Leyre and the two Lisas, thank you for having the patience to sit for us. The Thursday morning and evening classes will happen regardless of the numbers. The importance of figure drawing cannot be overrated, it is the cornerstone of art training. The human figure offers every challenge one could require – line, tone, perspective, and composition.
So, you think you can’t draw. Maybe you’ve always been interested. Maybe you have secretly wished you were an undiscovered prodigy. Maybe you’re too afraid to even try. Maybe you think joining an art class means competing against more capable artists…
In the beginner’s class you will be among peers of the same ability. Some may have more natural talent than others, but that’s just lucky for them. It does not mean that the skill can not be learned. Art is like anything else…discover the tools, learn the basics, practice the techniques and you will improve.
Yeah! NO Thai holidays here as it’s art business as usual @ the studio… with the added bonus that we’ll ALSO be open on Monday!
If you DO fancy popping into paint on either Sunday (11 – 4pm) OR/AND also Monday (10 – 5pm) the studio will be open & ready for YOU… so to anyone who has the URGE to paint but normally has to drag themselves off to the bloomin’ office on a normal dreaded Monday morning….THIS IS YOUR CHANCE!
All levels welcome.
The diversity of studio members during these lovely summer months is pretty awesome at the moment!
At the higher end of the scale we are blessed to have the company of Mr. Chao, a fantastically cool gentleman who is also turning out to be a very capable & diligent painter…
To his grand daughter Narisa, another up and coming star…
As seen here, working together at their morning art lessons…
To one of our youngest (& certainly one of our cutest students in situ at the moment)…. little Tia, aged just 5 (bless her!)
Want to leave the crowds, pollution and traffic of Bangkok for a day? Want to get in touch with your inner artist in a jungle retreat? Want to sit in an idyllic oasis and paint?
In the secret gardens of a famous Thai artist?
Starting from the second week of September (Monday 12th) Elsie will be holding weekly one day outings to Baan Suan Si lapa in Nonthaburi, home and studio of the well-known Thai artist, Wichien Wonsupalak.
@ Attic…and we’re now open ‘EVERY’ SUNDAY, from 11 – 4pm.
So just put in that call … & you too can be here!
Be COOL … and see you in the Attic Creative Art Zone soon
Is ON, YEAH… sweet!
THURSDAY 7th July, from 6.00 – 9.00pm
This morning’s figurative workshop lesson was a STILL LIFE set-up, with a twist…
And with Mr. Hamburger’s fine example of a classic STILL LIFE all set up & ready to go… & with him taking the lead, this morning’s students were ON IT!
Here’s Ben giving some helpful advise: ‘This is super cool but could you try to make them less dead looking OK!? to new member Mic….
To Sidhika: who’s just shown me her sketch book for the first time this morning and wow, she’s going to be a really great artist….
