Neon Naked life drawing class

Neon Naked is a new and unique Life Drawing experience that specialises in creating unusual and creative designs by using vibrant and bold living sculptures. By combining an industrial UV light and reactive body paints with hand crafted flamboyant accessories its 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. 

Art supplies are provided however please feel free to bring your own.

If you are new to it don’t be shy, help is on hand if needed. Its fun and friendly with a chilled out atmosphere. A great idea to help unwind after your first day back to work.

Classes on every second Monday 7.30pm – 9.30pm.
