BYOB is one of our favourite acronyms.
Workshops and masterclasses are a great way to pick up or hone your skills. Whether you’re into pottery making like Seth Rogen or you’re keen on upping your cocktail-making game in time for your next gathering, they’re also awesome ways to pass the time. (Featured image: @4dgraphic)
Well, our friends at Fever have teamed up with Sydney’s International Institute of Art and Photography as well as Sydney’s School of Art Nudes to bring to light four awesome workshops that will not only teach you the ins and outs and the things you need to know when it comes to photography, nude art and make-up application, but they will also let you bring your own booze to drink because we’re all adults here and it helps fuel the creative process, we hear.
Each and every workshop is BYOB but IIAP and SAN also provide snacks and soft drinks throughout.
1. Art Nude Photography Workshop
Hump day is going to be looking a little different from now as the School of Art Nudes is hosting Art Nude Photography workshops every Wednesday where you will be able to pick up new photography skills and techniques.
Over the course of three hours, you will not only learn the importance of lighting but also how to perfect it as well as all the camera-handling essentials. Most importantly, you’ll also learn how to properly communicate with the model and the art of the pose as well.
Each Wednesday sees a new mood and concept put in place where various elements of fine-art composition will also be taught to beginners while professionals can choose to do their own thing and add amazing work to their portfolio.
To see the moods and concepts for each workshop and select the one you would like to attend, head over here.
