New beginnings....2

Today I set myself the task of finding a space in a community centre or other such building to start a life drawing group.

A simple task you might think. It has to be affordable, cover the costs of the space and the model and the equipment and supplies provided for people who have never done it before. In addition I would like to be able to make a small amount of money to cover my time for co-ordinating it.

Well, everywhere is full up in the evenings and afternoons was about the best I could do, except for one place, presently to remian nameless, which could offer me as much space asI wanted but at £60 per hour! Ok then.

Finally I found somewhere, the co-ordinator of the centre is enthusiastic, supportive and may even be able to find me some funding to start an early evening art gtroup for young people. Cooler than cool. Funny how some people think of community space as a space fpor community first and some think of it as a business first.So from 7th December 2009, Verdon Street Recreation Centre will have a life drawing class, 6.30 to 8.30, every monday evening. £5 per person although it is negotiable if you're skint! Welcome 1 and all.
