I love life drawing and do it whenever I can. There’s loads of classes to choose from in London but I’m always drawn to the slightly alternative, themed classes. I have loved bondage life drawing, horror life drawing, stripper life drawing and shibari life drawing… the list goes on.
As well as drawing, I do a lot of yoga. I love the shapes yogis make so ‘yoga life drawing’ seemed a good idea to me. So when I couldn’t find a regular yoga life drawing class in London, I decided to create my own.
Read my blurb below and come along on the 15th! It will be fun I promise 🙂
Life drawing is about observing the human form and drawing the shapes it creates. Yogis throw some pretty awesome shapes that are both challenging and fun to draw. So with the help of Illustrator Kate Philipson, we are launching a monthly class where you can draw (fully clothed) models striking amazing yoga poses.
Like yoga, drawing is a moving meditation. So whether you are a professional artist or haven’t picked up a pen in years, life drawing is a great way to relax and unlock creativity.
Each Yoga Life Drawing class will begin with a short yoga sequence to get your mind and body warmed up and ready to draw. After which, you’ll sit back with your sketchbook and let the yoga model do the work.
Our yoga models come in all shapes and sizes, so each session will bring new challenges. They are also all experienced yoga teachers, so will give insight into the correct alignment of the postures you’ll be drawing.
Yoga Life Drawing is open to everyone – no yoga or artistic experience required.
The first session is at Yoke on Sunday 15th October 1:30-4pm. Places are limited, so book your space now. £20 including booking fee.
Yoga mats, props and art materials are provided, but you are welcome to bring along your own. And if you needed any more persuading…post yoga tea and treats will be provided.
