This class explores creative drawing, moving away from the perfectionist traditional teachings of life drawing. By trying out several different image-making techniques from continuous line drawing to pointillism the artists are encouraged to think outside the box and create more unusual imagery.

As described in TimeOut Magazine as 'It might look like a Full Moon party, but this evening of sketching is an experiment in light, colour, and texture. The models become ‘living sculptures’ covered in UV lights and reactive body paints. Trippy.'

Neon Naked is a unique life drawing experience that specializes in creating unusual and creative designs by using vibrant and bold living sculptures. By combining UV light and reactive body paints with hand-crafted flamboyant accessories it's easy to get the creative juices flowing.

The class starts 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. With essentials such as pencil, paper and drawing boards but also you can use fluorescent glowing neon pastels and highlighters to make your art pop!

No experience needed. 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.

Neon Naked is an immersive UV life drawing experience creating a colourful twist on a traditional idea. It has developed over 5 years, with hundreds of classes completed, and is now happening continuously every week in multiple locations in London.

This workshop 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.

BRINGING THE RAVE TO THE ARTIST STUDIO, THIS LIFE DRAWING CLASS CHANNELS A FULL MOON PARTY THROUGH ITS PAINTBRUSHES. MODELS POSE IN A PITCH BLACK ROOM, BUT BLACK LIGHTS REVEAL THEY ARE CLAD IN NEON PAINT. FOR ACCOMPLISHED DRAUGHTSMEN, THIS IS ONE FOR PUSHING THE BOUNDARIES OF YOUR DRAWING SKILLS – BUT FOR COLOUR FANATICS THIS CAN ALSO BE A PRIME EXCUSE TO GET OUT THOSE NEON CRAYONS.

EVENING STANDARD

IT MIGHT LOOK LIKE A FULL MOON PARTY, BUT THIS AFTERNOON OF SKETCHING IS AN EXPERIMENT IN LIGHT, COLOUR AND TEXTURE. INSTEAD OF BEING STATIC FIGURES, THE MODELS BECOME ‘LIVING SCULPTURES’ COVERED IN REACTIVE BODY PAINTS AND UNDER UV LIGHTS. GET SOME ARTFUL CLUB VIBES WITHOUT LEAVING YOUR SEAT.
