Gravis
Leo Valenti
Sat 20th March
15:00-14:00

A grief themed workshop combining art and the catharsis of open dialogue, Gravis explores grief in all aspects. We will be looking at different artists and how they portray grief through their artwork, then have a discussion on what grief means to us. Everyone is encouraged to create some art or showcase something they have found portraying the theme- bring a poem, a drawing or whatever you fancy! 

We will be using the website Padlet, you do not need to download it prior it is just a link, otherwise bring yourself, and some art supplies!

Murder Mystery Writing

Thal Power (She/Her)

Sun 21st March

12:00-13:00

1 hour

Thal (she/her), seen here as a child, is in fact a 22 year old artist from Dundee. Her artwork is an attempt to manifest long-term mental well-being in herself and in those close to her. Her workshop will be an exploration of how identity can be expressed through artwork, through symbolism, dramaturgy, and comedy tropes. One of her specialities is creative writing for the purposes of entertainment, so this workshop will equip you to write your own interactive murder mystery play!

Queer Life Drawing Workshop

Callen McKeon w/ Queer Life Drawing 

Sun 21st March

17:00-19:00

2 hours

A workshop delivered as part of Glasgow University Queer Arts Festival brought to you by Queer Life Drawing as a celebration of queer bodies taking up space! 

Come to our life drawing workshop that will be for two hours and hosted by non-binary artist Callen McKeon. Callen's practice is an exploration of gender in fine art contexts and they are currently focusing on drawings of trans bodies in pencil. They run weekly life drawing sessions that occur online every Monday but they are hosting this workshop as part of the festival in order to bring you the opportunity to join in for free! 

Queer Life Drawing exists in order to raise representation of LGBTQIA+ models in both life drawing classes as well as contemporary art. A level of visibility that is especially important considering that historically speaking we have been misrepresented, underrepresented, or falsely represented in art and art history. 

This workshop is untutored, open to all abilities, and we particularly encourage absolute beginners! You will need the minimum of basic drawing tools, so pencils and paper, or any medium you wish to work in. 

Poses will start fairly short and get longer as the session goes on. We will have a short break in the middle and finish on a longer pose.

Nic (They/Them)
Queer Life Drawing Model

Hey! I'm Nic (they/them), a fat, queer, trans-masc-ish artist living in Dundee. I've previously dabbled in clothing/underwear modelling and have been part of life drawing reference sites such as queerartmodels.com. I've had this body for nearly 27 years now and we've been on quite a journey together so I'm excited for my first adventure into live life modelling!
