Easel does it: offbeat life-drawing fun in N1

Posted at 10:00 am, February 25, 2013 in Arts & Entertainment

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.

 Tickets are priced £10 each, plus booking fee (this includes art materials) and are extremely limited, so nip over to Cass Art to book for Angela Carter and Hot Cross Bunny Boilers sessions.
