An experimental life drawing evening that entails life drawing, music, spoken work, and installation work - the aim is to queer art classes by subverting normative gazes!.


About the series: Life drawing is widely recognized as a great way to develop artistic skills and an eye for form, and in itself offers a meditative and peaceful practice. RAW Labs Themed Life Drawing Series is about going beyond this. We aim to challenge patterns of 'norms' within art, the isms, if you will. And so, we have made an open call to anyone who feels the confinement of these norms, and can see the potential in life drawing to go beyond them. Within this series we also feel that simple dynamics of: diligent quiet participants - drawing of the silent model - overseen by facilitator, is too simple an equation. Instead, through drawing upon readings, visual imagery, props, music and more inspired by each session's theme, we open the space to everyone's responses. Model, participants, facilitator can all bring their own preconveived and spontaneous ideas about the theme and the coming together of people and thoughts in this space will be art in and of itself.

About the class: All artistic abilities welcome. This is an inclusive, open space for all degrees of artisitc confidence and experience. Materials provided. BYOB - alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks welcome! But please stay respectful. Anyone violating the respect built in this space will be asked to leave, no exceptions. 

About RAW Lab: A place for ideas, action and reaction. The RAW Lab hosts a changing programme of art, events, conversation and coffee, book exchange, film club and yoga and more. Serving great coffee and sharing great ideas.
