I am excited to be presenting Shamani Nair for our first Costumed Life Drawing event back at Bunya House.
Shamani is an Indian Classical dancer trained in a genre known as Bharata Natyam, an art form that combines melody, rhythm and expression. Dating back 2,000 years, this sacred art form originated from Tamil Nadu, a state in South India.
While drawing this dynamic performer, we will also catch glimpses of the rich tradition of storytelling through dance.
We originally planned this session for a ‘Park Life Drawing’ event, but the weather blew that off course. I am excited that we can now proceed!
When – Event Cancelled
Unfortunately the current cases of community transmission of COVID-19 prompt me to cancel this event.
I wonder if we will be third time lucky, sometime down the track?
Saturday 1 August, 1pm-3pm
Bunya House, Arana Hills (address provided once you register)
Pre-payment is required to secure your spot. I will provide details of how once you register.
Staying safe in the pandemic: I am following the Qld Government Guidelines to comply with a covid-safe event. If you are feeling unwell and suffering any symptoms that could be covid-related, you must not attend the session. Please check the details in this cancellation policy:
What should I bring?
This is part of our graded return to Bunya House and there are many restrictions on the venue’s equipment due to covid-safe cleaning requirements. You will have a chair to sit on, but unfortunately there will be no access to the regular equipment we used in the past (no easels, no boards).
Please bring your own:
- sketching gear and materials – be aware you will be resting your drawing pad on your knees
- foot stool if you would like to prop your knees up (you can get great little $5 folding stools from Kmart)
- drawing board if you will need one
- hot drinks and snacks (we are not permitted to use the kitchen items)
Bunya House will have hand sanitiser and a spray sanitiser available.
Due to social distancing requirements, there are only 10 spots available. If you want one, you will need to be quick:
