Monday 9 Sept 2013 at 7pm

A recent CDG request for a figure sketching session resulted in Aimee kindly volunteering for clothed model poses on Monday 9 September from 8pm to 9pm at THE GOWER PUB, Gwennyth Street, Cathays, Cardiff, CF24 4PH

This is one week before the current 'handing in' date for the BHAC drawing exhibition and is a good opportunity to discuss proposed or completed drawings before handing in.

Please bring your work along, we'll be meeting in the bar/lounge one hour earlier, at 7pm.

Tuesday 20 August 2013 from 6pm

This month, instead of an evening in the Lansdowne Pub, we will be meeting by the Café Castan, Llandaff Fields for a park drawing session (landscape, trees, people at play, strollers, dog walkers, sports & games).

An hour or so sketching and then into the Halfway Pub about 8pm for a drink.
We will do the drawing THEN the drinking!!!
Also a chance to plot some CDG drawing events that may supply the subject matter for our upcoming exhibition at Butetown History & Arts Centre.

Cafe Castan is at the top of Cathedral Road, Pontcanna, just at the south-east corner of Llandaff Fields (car parking available).

The Halfway Pub is nearby, on the other side of Cathedral Road.
