Workshops // Coming up // Venice Carnival Costumed Life Drawing
4 February

Venice Carnival Costumed Life Drawing

Come with us and join as we head of to Venice for the annual Carnival! 

This two-hour sessions will offer a range of poses and models in a variety of costumes, transporting you to the city of bridges. Make sure to bring along all your drawing supplies! 

The Venice Carnival is thought to have begun in 1162 growing over the years, been banned and finally returning in 1967 and has grown ever since! 

Taking place in February each year it is a chance to party and brings colour to the streets of Venice. 

The iconic costumes and masks worn are based on clothes from the 16th-17th Century and that is where we will be taking our costumed inspiration from for this session. Including iconic mask and Harlequin. 

This untutored session is suitable for all ages and levels and a fab way to spend Saturday morning. Poses will last between 1-10mins.
