Life Drawing Workshop – Nude Bodies

Life Drawing Workshop – Nude Bodies

What is this event?

The Life Drawing Workshop is a safe space where we experiment with artistic expression together, where we draw the figure of a real person posing in front of us. Our models will stand still for a while, and we will draw what we see.

For this edition we will experiment drawing two nude models with the guidance of Still-Hypatia.

For the well-being of our models and the comfort of all participants, and in order to create a secure and respectful atmosphere for both models and participants, we have supplemented the InFLUX rules with the following rules specific to The Life Drawing Workshop. Please read them and follow them.

For the safety of the models

➜ We will not make explicit comments about the bodies of our models. That is, we avoid saying “Oh, how nice you look in that coat”, “Oh, how nice your back looks in this light”.
➜ We will not touch the models or their objects without consent.
➜ We don’t get upset or criticize the models if they move, sneeze, or scratch themselves. We are humans with human needs.
➜ We respect the models decisions to sit in a certain position for longer or shorter amounts of time, depending on their comfort.

For the safety of the participants

➜ We don’t watch someone else draw over their shoulder / from the side without their consent.
➜ We do not touch a participant’s objects without their consent.
➜ We don’t give feedback (positive, negative, or constructive) without being asked to or without having already discussed it with the person and having their consent that it’s ok to offer our opinion.
➜ We do not criticize the way someone chooses to express themselves or chooses to experiment.

The Life Drawing Workshop is a space where we’re going to be a bit vulnerable. When we participate in the event, we choose to support our own curiosity and that of the other participants.

🇷🇴 This event will be held in Romanian.

📝 We confirm attendance 24 hours before the start of the event at the latest. Please register at least one day before the start of the event.

How does this event work?

This edition of The Life Drawing Workshop will focus on drawing nude bodies. If this subject is not yet comfortable for you, focus on drawing what is within your area of comfort.
The models for this Life Drawing Session will not be wearing clothes. The models will pose in time slots between one minute and 15 minutes.

How can you reach us?

Our address is Boulevard Theodor Pallady 287.

You can find information on how to reach us here or here.

The area has many parking spaces, especially in the evening or after 6 pm. The metro station at “1 Decembrie 1918” is the closest to us and it’s only 8 minutes away, on foot.

Take the small elevator (it’s behind the large stairs on the ground floor) to the 5th floor, where you will see the sign for InFLUX. One more flight of stairs up, and you’re there. If mobility issues prevent you from climbing up a flight of stairs, you can take the large elevator, which will take you straight to our door, but that one is much slower.

Our phone number is +40723258105, and you can write to us on WhatsApp before the door-closing time.

Who can come?

The Life Drawing Workshop organized by InFLUX is open to anyone who wants to experiment and learn, no matter their level. We are creating a safe, welcoming, and queer-friendly space together.

What are you bringing? 

📤 Please bring your InFLUX card! The event requires that you have attended the Consent Workshop. We will check at the entrance if you have attended it.

You are encouraged to bring any illustration tools you want. They can be tools you have mastered or ones you have never worked with before and want to explore.

For beginners, the friendliest tools are an HB pencil and an A4 sheet with no lines or dots. Other interesting tools to explore are colored pencils, a pen or brush pen with ink, watercolors, or acrylics. We’ll also provide free materials from InFLUX for those who need them or want to experiment with something new.

What are you wearing?

This event has no dress code, so wear whatever makes you comfortable.

Who organizes this event?

Still-Hypatia illustrates joyously. She has no formal education in this field, only the enthusiasm to create a safe and welcoming space for an artistic community. She practices relational anarchy and consensual kink.
