X Factor and Beyond !!!

Hello All

I've had quite an exciting week.
On Thursday I was off to a conference - which turned out to be REALLY boring !! However, in my train carriage, on the way there, was Rick Mayall
from The Young Ones. Not that surprising, as he's my neighbour, but diverting, nevertheless.
Then, on the way home, John Prescott ,
yes, JOHN PRESCOTT, was in my carriage. I got on at Westminster station, but impressive stuff, even so.
Then when I got home, my street was cordoned off and riddled with police, due to a robbery - what an exciting life I lead !!

However, the biggest event this week was organising a life drawing class for the X Factor finalists ! They came to a secret location in West London (except Eoghan - he was deemed too young !) and drew one of my male models. There's a twist to it, which I can't tell you about until after the broadcast. Have a look at the Xtra Factor on Saturday night (29 Nov ) to see what we did !

NOTE ADDED APRIL 2010. JLS (lovely boys!) and Alexandra Burke (absolutely charming!), both attened. Amazing to think how far they have both come now. Well done, JLS and Alexandra!!!

Last Saturday, we had yet another fun life drawing hen party in Notting Hill!
Cheerio for now

How I Came to Be Organising Life Art Hen Parties

Hello All

I'm a life model myself and help run The Register of Artists' Models . For many years I have run drop in life drawing sessions, including the famous Bare Facts session at the
Islington Arts Factory . This takes place every Wednesday evening at 6.30pm.

I recently branched out into arranging private life drawing sessions as and when. This happened quite by chance. As I had a nice studio space available near where I live, I decided to start another drop in life art class. This was short lived, for various reasons, but I kept an ad up on Gumtree saying I had a nice studio available and could organise private life classes for groups or individuals.

One of these events happened to be a hen party; word got around and now here I am organising life art hen parties regularly! They're great fun and you soak up a bit of culture as well!
Oh, and the hen receives a voucher for 2 people to attend a session of our weekly life drawing workshop!!

I'd love to hear from you
