Nudity has a long, storied, and complicated history in the art world. The tradition dates back to ancient times and the unclothed figure, both male and female, has been a source of inspiration for many artists. However, you don’t need to be a world-renowned artist—or artist at all—to get your hands on some paint and paint some nudes. Life drawing/painting has boomed in recent years and the practice is open to all—including this Friday evening BYOB workshop in Stanmore.
The human form and how it’s represented remains an important part of our culture and identity. It shouldn’t be given up lightly, but it also doesn’t always need to be high brow.
Fridays with the School of Art Nudes is all art, music, food and drink. And nudes too as you’re invited along for an evening of life painting under the guidance of teachers who have practiced and perfected this art over many years.
Whether you’re a beginner looking to learn how to paint the human form or an experienced painter intent on exploring your artistic self, this three-hour BYOB workshop is the perfect way to end the working week.
Thank God It’s Nude’s Friday evening nude painting workshop takes place from 6:30-9:30pm at the International Institute of Art & Photography in Stanmore.
All art equipment will be provided for you and you’ll also get to snack on some delicious fingerfood. All you need to do is bring your own booze—be responsible as no lewd or derogatory behaviour will be permitted.
