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.

Bowel cancer can strike at any age. Each year about 3,000 New Zealanders are diagnosed with the disease and more than 1,200 will die. That’s as many as breast and prostate cancer combined. But it is treatable – and beatable – if detected early enough.
We'd be keen to hear about your discoveries on your recent travels around New Zealand. Were there any small towns, activities or attractions that surprised you, for better or for worse? Did you come across any lesser-know spots you think more Kiwis should check out? Which small towns do you think deserve more visitors than they get? Please remember your comment may be included in an article unless you state that you don't want it to be. Cheers.
