Lockdown Life Drawing

lifedrawing web post

Lockdown Life Drawing (18+) Dunamaise is supporting artists during this Pandemic, through a variety of new online workshops, presentations and other off-line supports.

IF you can, please Donate to Dunamaise at Checkout so that we can be here for our artists and audiences throughout these strange days!  

Online sessions are now available weekly through ZOOM with our artist in residence Rebecca Deegan, supported by Dunamaise Arts Centre. Since it is not possible for our real-life sessions to go ahead for the foreseeable future - as an alternative, Rebecca will be running a series of online sessions with a live model through ZOOM, with each session exploring a different theme.   

The weekly sessions will be themed, for example we will explore poses in the Renaissance and Art Nouveau style, among others. You will explore poses, motifs and themes commonly found in artwork from this period. We will have a nude model* posing for the sessions, with a variety of poses ranging from 1 minute to 25 minutes. Suitable for artists of all levels - tips and guidance will be provided for beginners, please feel free to ask questions throughout!  

Instructions: - Please go to www.zoom.us - sign up & download ZOOM in advance (it works best on a computer, laptop or tablet)- Book your ticket on www.dunamaise.ie via our WHAT’S ON section to receive the ZOOM meeting link & password for the session (tickets are on a “pay what you can” basis – please consider making a donation at checkout to help us support the artist and life model for their time) - When you join the session and see our model, click on their window, then click the three dots and choose "pin screen" - We will open the sessions 15 minutes early for participants to get set up. We will have a 5 minute break halfway through, and at the end there will be time to chat and have a look at each others’ work.  


*IMPORTANT: Life Models are completely NUDE, we recommend ages 18+ only to comply with child safety.

Meetings will be Password protected and locked to attendees only. Attendees are asked to participate somewhere private, and recording is strictly forbidden to protect the models safety.  

Hope to see you there!
