Queer Lines: Exploring Queer Bodies Intensive
This workshop is a fun, sparkly alternative to the look and approach of most life drawing classes. It’s open to experienced and non-experienced artists who want to explore how to playfully capture queer bodies.
Working with a life model and facilitator Margaret Mayhew, you will engage in a range of short and long exercises that increase your confidence in responding to your own perceptions and imagination. At the end of this class you will have a collage/drawing to take home.
All materials provided.
WHEN: Saturday 24 August, 1pm – 4pm
VENUE: Big Fish Studio
