Our next event on Wednesday 5th April is a life drawing class with a difference!
London-based Neon Naked Life Drawing are in town for a special one night only drawing class. This class explores creative drawing, moving away from the perfectionist traditional teachings of life drawing. By trying out a number of different image-making techniques from continuous line to pointillism the artists are encouraged to think outside the box and create more unusual imagery.
Neon Naked is a unique life drawing experience that specialises in creating unusual and creative designs by using vibrant and bold living sculptures. By combining UV light and reactive body paints with handcrafted flamboyant accessories it's easy to get the creative juices flowing.
The class starts off with some quick and fun drawing exercises to get you warmed up. Then goes into longer drawing times with more exciting life images, experimenting with colour, light and texture.
Beginners are very welcome. Most classes are a mix of artists, a crafty couple, people trying something different after work and the odd student. Help is always available if you get a challenging pose. It's fun and friendly with a chilled out atmosphere. A great affordable evening out if you want to try something new.
Tickets for the evening event are available through the UpCo shop.
UpCo's monthly 'typeRIGHT' evening continues (check here for upcoming dates). 'typeRIGHT' is a monthly typewriter club born of an obsession with these wonderful machines. There’s something about the physical endeavour involved in typing; real words, real paper and real people. Come along and tap out a few words to an old friend, or release the inner novelist in you! Best sellers, best friends, they all need words. Paper, typewriters and envelopes provided, just bring your imagination!
