go figure – Cumbria life artists

Artists interested in participating in Go Figure should contact David Miller or attend in the company of a member (someone who regularly pre-pays).

Sessions  normally run in 10 week cycles.

All sessions are on a Friday.

Artists must bring their own equipment.

There is no formal tutoring.

Model arrives at 9:30am and starts at 9:45pm.

Most sessions finish at 1pm, some finish at 2pm.

Artists, please arrive between 9am and 9:30 to help with setting up the hall.

There is a 15 minute refreshment break either at 10:45 (1pm finish) or 11:15(2pm finish)

At the end of the session please help to clear away. To maintain the viability of the group it’s important that as many artists as possible know where everything goes, how the heating works etc.

In charge of poses

There is a voluntary rota of members who manage each session. This involves collaborating with the model on the poses and making sure suitable props are available on the day and communicating how the session will be structured to everyone on the GF mailing list.

The form of each session varies depending on who is running it. Poses vary in length considerably. The model may pose  with or without clothes depending on what the artist running the session has discussed with the model.

In charge of refreshments 

The artist responsible for working with the model at a session is NOT responsible for refreshments. There is a separate rota for refreshments. This includes making sure tea, coffee, milk and  biscuits/cakes are available and the kitchen is tidied up at the end. The person responsible for refreshments each week is shown below.

Please sign up to the refreshments rota if you don’t want to or aren’t able to take charge of a modelling session. You can sign up at a session or email Bridget Stanley. To check which sessions need volunteers see below.You can claim back money you pay out for refreshments – see Jane.

Go Figure is not a business. The only people who get paid are the models.

Go Figure is like a  club without officers or formal rules – so please muck in to make it work.

Charges to artists: Pre-payment for cycle of ten sessions £65; visitors £10 a 9:45-1pm session and £12 a 9:45-2pm session.

Go Figure seeks to follow RAM (Register of Artists’ Models) guidelines.

(No photography of models. Please don’t ask the models, it is Go Figure policy.)
