Well, due to the potent combination of some Spotify ‘improvements’ and my laziness there hasn’t been a new playlist post for an age. Time to rectify that with a bumper blog full of past playlists, although perhaps lacking a tad on the entertaining babble front.
As part of this year’s Gibson Street Gala, ArtFusion will be populating Westbank Quadrant with over 30 artists’ stalls, murals and sculptures!
All The Young Nudes life drawing club is delighted to be a part of this – We love a chance to showcase our nudes! We’ll have a stall set up all day with sketches available to buy – The selection will feature work created at our Tuesday night drawing club. Anyone who has ever attended the club is invited to exhibit on the stall. Get in touch if you would like to do so.
We’ll have some ATYN sketchpads, badges, stickers and more goodies available to buy on the stall.
See you there!
“Serge Gainsbourg is all too often remembered for his anti-establishment antics and embodied as a caricature of the typical French stereotype, but the notoriety that resulted would not have been so pronounced had he not demonstrated such amazing talent during his lifetime.”
“For years, I had scoured the internet trying to find the origin of a lush strings interlude that formed the highlight of one of my favourite techno mixes . Lying in bed watching Visconti’s Death In Venice, it became clear that the entire film score was based around the piece I had been sounding out: Gustav Mahler’s 5th Symphony.”
I love to hear all the feedback re the music on Tuesday nights. We try our best to have at least one Bowie and one Kate Bush track per playlist… I think it’s a good rule to have in place really. I usually make the playlists though over the last few weeks we’ve had some featured DJs, Justin, Pete and Bruce. I’ll get those playlists up online asap! But for now you can have a listen to our 2009/2010 compilation on Spotify.
For those of you who missed it, check out the Scotsman’s take on ATYN here.
A wee snippet:
“The success of the classes at the Flying Duck is such that each Tuesday the focus of regulars is on perspective and shading rather than pints and packets of smokey bacon.
The event – titled All the Young Nudes – has become so popular that organisers are struggling to find space for all the budding artists. ”
The Sun made up their own version of events:
“The Flying Duck in Glasgow has seen takings SOAR after setting up the nude sketching sessions to liven up quiet Tuesday nights. The event is now such a hit organisers are struggling to fit in all their budding artists. And they even have a waiting list of more than 100 models who have volunteered to strip off for the classes.” - HA!
Hello y’all. Working away at making this a functional blog for all so that everybody can post their work and talk about the club after it happens. Please drop me a note or comment on the site to let me know of anything you would like to see at the club (or here on the site). See you soon.

ATYN had the pleasure of being a part of Space Made Live earlier this year in conjunction with the West End Festival. The event was a visual, conceptual and contemporary artists’ exploitation of the interior of The Arthouse, an architecturally unique building in Glasgow. Everybody who had ever attending the drawing club was invited to exhibit work as part of this unique exhibition. We had a great response and hung the work of over 40 artists, many of them selling work over the weekend. We ran a live drawing session on the night which was a lot of fun for all. An awesome event organised by design and online gurus Small Media Large.
