For this episode, I met with the incredible life drawing hosts from the Berlin-based sessions called "Sketcherei" - Liana Gilman and Alexandra Rudneva. Their (now online) events are always fun and diverse and leave a lot of space for the self-expression of the model - and of the sketching artists.
The goal of Sketcherei is to connect artists - sketchers and performers - around the globe. The focus of every session is catching the motion and dynamic of the human body, but Sketcherei always has performance at the heart of everything. Coming from a Russian art background hostile to non-academic artists, Alexandra and Liana were keen to create a community for artists of all kinds to enjoy the drawing process.
If you like to get a glimpse of how much thinking and creation can be behind an online life drawing session - or if you just would like to know what two passionate Russian women are doing in Berlin - this episode is for you.
