Sketch life models portraying Frida Kahlo with Art Macabre. To coincide with the opening week of the blockbuster Frida exhibition, we present a life drawing exploration of the vision and legacy of one of the world's leading artists.
Explore her unique Surrealist vision of pain, pleasure and passion. We will have two models, posing as contrasting aspects of Frida Kahlo's character and viewpoint. Recreating some of her self-portraits and paintings with flesh, flora, fruit and skulls.
From "Exquisite Corpse" drawing game warm ups to collage materials available to capture the colourful expressiveness of her art, we will do our best to conjure up the weird and wonderful world of Frida Kahlo at this workshop.
Grab a mezcal from the bar upstairs and sketch to a soundtrack of Mexican folk, jazz beloved by her and mariachi music.
Over 18s only. Basic drawing materials and paper provided but feel free to bring your own too.
