Costumed Life Drawing: Arabian Nights

‘New Lamps for Old!’ 

Join our Arabian Nights inspired Costumed Life Drawing this March. This 2hr session will have a range of costumed models for you to draw in poses ranging from 1-15mins. 

In 1001 Arabian Nights Scheherazade is a legendary Persian queen who is the storyteller in One Thousand and One Nights. The story, which was written many hundreds of years ago, tells of a Arabian king who married a young girl every night. At the end of every night he would send his new wife to have her head chopped off.

Some of the stories commonly associated with the Arabian Nights—particularly "Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp" and "Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves"—were not part of the collection in the original Arabic versions, but were instead added to the collection by French translator Antoine Galland. 

This session is untutored and suitable for ages 12 +  (Under 18's must be accompanied by a responsible adult)

Make sure to bring your choice of drawing materials- anything from pen and paper, to oils, inks or even an ipad. 

This is an untutored session, suitable for all ages and levels and is a great way to spend your Saturday between 11:00-13:00. Poses will be between 1-10 mins.

What is Life Drawing?

Life drawing or figure drawing is the drawing with pencil, ink, charcoal, paint or whatever you choose of a figure from life. Most often associated with drawing the human form nude.

What is Costumed Life Drawing?

The biggest difference with costumed life drawing is that the model has clothes on, you will be able to see how mail clings to the body of how a sword held. In our case we are also expanding this to not only clothes our model but also bring a character to life.

Why do it?

There are many reasons to do life drawing, one of the most common reasons is the suggestion that it will make you a better artist.  True, practice can help you improve and develop skills and these sessions offer you a specific time to focus on creating art. Do not however be put off if you have never tried life drawing before, this can be your introduction. Maybe you are the next Da Vinci just waiting for the right moment.
