There are plenty of places in London where you can stare intensely at naked people for an hour, and as a general rule, these are often best avoided. However, we’re making an exception for Cass Art’s new series of life-drawing events, where the naked flesh serves to stimulate mass-scale creativity, not shifty men in dirty overcoats.
Taking place once a month at the art shop’s Islington flagship, the sessions – held in association with Art Macabre – each come in their own distinct flavour. To mark International Women’s Day, the next event (taking place March 5) is dedicated to feminist writer Angela Carter, so expect costumes, props and and set-ups to channel magic realism and gothic iconography. Then, on April 5, it’s ‘Hot Cross Bunny Boilers’ – a class themed around vengeful femme fatales. Expect growling.
