Mandy Boursicot Atelier is a small and comfortable environment with usually 10 or fewer students.
The figure model normally takes a standing contraposto pose, which is the same pose for all 3-4 weeks. During each 3 hour evening, students draw for 20-25 minutes (longer at the start of the evening and shorter at the end of the evening).
After each sitting, there is a 5 minute break. The third break is the long break of about 15 minutes. The teacher does the time keeping.
The portrait model is clothed and seated (please wear same top/shirt every week).
The format of the session is the same as for the figure, that is drawing for 25 minutes + 5 minute breaks. The third break is a long one, 15 minutes. The pose continues from one week to the next for 3-4 weeks.
Currently there are 4 model groups a week:
Sunday, nude figure 6-9pm
Monday, clothed portrait 6:30-9:30pm
Tuesday, nude figure 6:30-9:30pm
Wednesday, clothed portrait 2-5pm
In addition to regular weekly classes, there is a weekend workshop once a month. Depending on the topic of the weekend, a model may be required.
