The Artwork and Artists:

You may recall the invitation to attend the unveiling of three artists work at the Peruvian GastroBar Kushuro at the start of October, below are the photos from the night and of the free art class that took place, the first of many more to come for the Amazing Art Society.

Thank you to everyone who came to support the artists, the bar and the Amazing Art Society!

All the hard work it took to put the event together paid off with some amazing results:

  • Over 30 pieces of art installed in a few hours.
  • New art never seen in public before finally on display.
  • Private Gallery created in a new bar.
  • First Art Class for the Amazing Art Society.

If you are suffering from massive FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) right now, don’t worry! You can visit the bar and still see the artwork as they will be on display until the 9th of November 2019. You can find out more details of the exhibition here.

The Amazing Art Society Class

Creation Station: Art Supplies for the Sip and Sketch Art Class

The Art Class was a great success! I asked Sabrina to model for us with short poses at the beginning, 2 and 5 minutes poses to loosen the artists hands and build confidence at putting pencil to paper. We had four of the same pose, from different angles in order to study the form of a woman from different perspectives.

Longer, seated poses followed the break when everyone could refill their glasses. Drawing is thirsty work! At the end of the class Sabrina signed a few of the drawings and we all went back upstairs to start the party!

If you would like to attend an Amazing Art Society class in the future, join me on MeetUp here and sign up to our next event!

The Party Starts!

After the art class, the music started and the party began! We had a meet and greet with the artists. Cosy groups of visitors sat and chatted together on the terrace and there were many trips up and down the stairs to view the artwork in the private space. Many smiles and many laughs!

All in all, it was great evening, lots of hard work and lots achieved with a small and dynamic team!

There is great news and great progress for! I am hosting my first Art Class in Madrid!

I’ve made a Meetup Group, Amazing Art Society. Please join to receive updates on new classes coming throughout the year. Also have a browse of the other MeetUp groups I have created.

For the FREE art class on the 9th of October, you can join the Meetup event here.

We are also having a party to celebrate the opening of Kushuro on the same day. If you want to come along to the party only, without reserving a space in the art class, please join the event on Facebook here.

Kushuro is minutes away from the famous Reina Sofía Museum of Art and the grand Atocha Station. It’s been open for only a few months and I am so happy to be helping create the launch party now!

A quick run down of the schedule: Come to the bar from 6pm for dinner, 7pm to 9pm enjoy the FREE Art Class, then stay as long as you like. Keep in mind that there will be a party atmosphere with a DJ!

Please share the news, events and groups with your friends. Feel free to join us to celebrate with us whilst trying something different!

Lots of love, Aliya
