April Meetup: Childhood drawings

Since the March Meetup was cancelled due to stormy weather, we’re holding the same theme again this April! The theme is a light-hearted celebration of our childhood selves. Bring your old drawings, stories, or crafts from your youth to share and have a laugh. Don’t have your own? Bring a child relatives masterpiece!

Note that our regular home, The Foggy Goggle, will be closed to move to their new location so we’re going to get cozy with the fine folks over at Niche Lounge (1505 Barrington Street).

..Face it, you knew that *perfect* stegosaurus drawing would be useful one day, didn’t you?

E3C Taxidermy Life Drawing

Taxidermy Still Life night a success!

Who doesn’t like to draw dead animals? Well, over 25 people showed up February 7th to draw our taxidermy still life. Donated by the awesome folks at Plan B Halifax, we set up mood lighting for a variety of animals. A fox, duck, owl, eagle and some sort of lizard gave us their best poses.

Originally to get into the Valentine’s Day spirit, the arrangement was supposed to be romantic in nature. Like most things with art, we didn’t have a set plan on how to achieve this. We didn’t even know what animals we were going to have until an hour before E3C! We settled on ‘love bird’ theme, grabbed the fox and a metal rose. It works, right?

Once they were all safely shuttled into The Foggy Goggle Pub, we set to work assembling the still life. Our very expensive setup required three plastic chip boxes covered by a curtain panel, and two lamps. DIY whenever you can!

All skill levels of drawing and photography were welcomed to come and take in this magnificent sight. We even had a King’s College journalism student write a story on the event.

Dispite the cold, inside the Foggy Goggle artists of all abilities came together to render these critters. It was a fantastic night, and we hope you enjoy some of the drawings created from it. Again, a special thanks to Plan B for once again letting us raid their shop of curiosities to bring Halifax the best in creative events!
