Nous sommes excités de vous annoncer que le prochain événement de D&D se tiendra à la toute nouvelle Galerie Rye. Le thème sera dessiner costumé. Apporter un chapeau bizarre, de vieilles lunettes, un robe laide, un masque, ou n’importe quel autre item qui vous allume. Nous poserons comme mannequin chacun notre tour, s’inspirant de nos costumes ridicules. Les collaborations et les expérimentations sont encouragés!

Comme d’habitude, apportez votre papier, vos outils de dessin et vos rafraichissements à boire! Si vous désirez que nous publions vos dessins sur le blog, soumettez-nous les images digitales de vos créations à l’adresse dndmtl@gmail.com.

Regular drawing events @ Galérie Synthésie!

March 26, 2010

Thanks to Anthony from Galerie Synthésie for letting us know about their regular drawing events, including Drink & Draws, model sessions and the upcoming live drawing workshop “Adam & Eve in the Garden of Eden”!

Galerie Synesthésie
94 St. Catherine East, unit 7.
Montreal, Quebec,
H2X 1K7

(Message en français ci-dessous)

On Sunday, March 28, 14h30 – 17h30, Galerie Synesthésie will be holding a special live drawing workshop with the theme of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.  A male and female model, playing the roles of Adam and Eve, will play out the story of the fall of man and original sin through creative poses. The models will at first be nude, but in the spirit of the classic tale, they will ultimately clothe themselves after “eating” from the Tree of Knowledge.

This event is just one of Galerie Synesthésie’s many unique themed live sketching workshops, featuring single or double nude models in poses inspired by the given theme. Past themes include JD Waterhouse, Japan and Pirates, along with common festive themes, such as Halloween, Christmas and Valentine’s Day.

Like all of the gallery’s workshops, these events are open to beginning drawers as well as pros, and they always include great refreshments and often fabulous games and prizes. Previous and current sponsors who donated include: Barefoot Wine and Bubbly, Nouvelle Optique and the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.

Ce dimanche le 28 mars, de 14h30 à 17h30, la galerie Synesthésie présentera une séance spéciale de modèle vivant dont le thème sera Adam et Ève au jardin d’Éden. Deux modèles, l’un masculin, l’autre féminin, interpréteront la chute de l’humanité et l’avènement du péché originel. Cette légende sera évoquée par des poses inspirantes. Les modèles seront tout d’abord nus et, dans l’esprit des saintes écritures, ils s’habilleront progressivement après avoir goûté le fruit défendu de l’arbre de la connaissance.

La Galerie Synesthésie présente régulièrement ce type d’atelier de modèle vivant thématique. Nous centrant sur un sujet  bien défini et ayant recours à des modèles solo ou en couple, la galerie a déjà présenté plusieurs séances où les thèmes étaient, notamment, l’univers du peintre Waterhouse, les pirates, le Japon, ou, encore, des fêtes comme la Halloween, Noël et la Saint-Valentin.
Comme pour tous nos ateliers, ces événements sont accessibles tout autant aux dessinateurs débutants qu’à ceux de calibre professionnel. Nous offrons toujours des rafraîchissement, un buffet et, souvent, des jeux et des prix spéciaux. Parmi nos commanditaires, mentionnons Barefoot Wine and Bubbly, Nouvelle Optique et le Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal.
