Musocoal. Draw a musician as you listen

Megan from MEGANZ School of Visual Arts

Hi there, I have a new idea for a drawing workshop and would really like a show of hands as to who may like to attend? I need a minimum of 18 people to cover costs and get it running.

Hi there, I have a new idea for a drawing workshop and would really like a show of hands as to who may like to attend? I need a minimum of 18 people to cover costs and get it running.
I thought it would be nice to hire a musician (for a change) to be our life-model and while they play we can listen and draw them.
There won't be a tutor at all, just come along with your drawing tools and paper, and away you go! Great drawing practice for the artists and a great time for the musicians to have a very attentive audience in front of them.
I would hire a different person, and musical instrument for each workshop - Keyboard, Cello, Violin, and Guitar.
I have penciled in 4 afternoons, spanning every two weeks over Term 3. The first one will be on Saturday 25th July - 2.30 - 4.30 pm, at -Te Whare Ora, 37 Uxbridge Road, Howick.
The other dates are - 8th & 22nd August & 5th Sept.
The cost of each two-hour workshop will be $20.00
The name Musocoal is put together from Music or Muso and Charcoal.
Also if I do achieve the workshop numbers, I will be looking for competent musicians to play and model for us, so if you know of someone who plays any of those instruments mentioned above, I would like to hear from them. I would pay for your time.
I realize 2 hours is a long time to play but they wouldn't have to play all the time, they could just sit still at different times throughout it. We will have breaks as well. Probably softer music would be appropriate.
If you are interested in trying your hand at drawing a musician while they played please let me know and I will place your name on the list.
Cheers
Megan Murphy
