The United Arts Club has been an integral part of the Irish arts scene for almost 110 years. It is based in a Georgian building in Dublin. The arts committee is holding a second “anonymous” postcard sized fundraiser having raised €7,000 two years ago. All the money will be used for extensive repairs and upgrading of the Club. Art work must be sized 5” x 7” and signed on the reverse side only. This year we will be holding the fundraiser on Sunday, November 17th, with all work priced at €50. Viewing of the work will be from 3.30pm and sales from 6.00 pm.
These two scraperboards will be in it.

Dynamics of Drawing the Human Form Workshop>>
I will conduct a life drawing session on the 2nd of November at the Kennedy’s studios.
To have a slight change from standard nudity, the model will have props/costumes etc and strong lighting.
Materials will be limited to charcoal, pastels and chalk on tinted paper, to help the artists focus on good analytical observation, but we will attempt to avoid stiff drawing.
We will deal with proportion, volume, form and lighting.
There will be emphasis on the importance of back up measuring of proportion and angles, so as to get a good representation and an understanding of the dynamics of the human form.
All workshops will run from 10.15am until 4.15pm, with a short morning break (tea / coffee served) and one hour for your own lunch. Workshops are kept small – 9 people maximum. Early booking advisable!
Material required: A list of materials is sent out to all participants before the workshop. You may bring your own or purchase anything you are missing if available at a special discount on the day.
It’s €60 per person
Payment in full or a deposit of €30 required to secure a place. Payment in full is required two weeks before the date of demonstration or workshop.
