About Dirty Draws - Queer Life Drawing

A queer life drawing session, aiming to be high concept. But low brow.

A life drawing session focusing on artistic freedom and exploring the queer experience through (crass) art exercises. The aim is to play and create through absurd briefs that we hope will make you giggle. High concepts, low brow - like soiled lingerie or lambrini in a crystal goblet.

Each session runs along a theme, with the models’ poses reflecting the brief, incorporating props along with unusual art materials. Since Halloween is around the corner, our first session is based on the 7 deadly sins - expect rage, overindulgence and debauchery!

We have generously been offered the use of Vivid Projects. This 2nd floor venue is a fantastic space with projectors & spot lighting, and also refreshments on site, but bring a jumper if chilly. Unfortunately there is currently no lift access, but please let us know if you have accessibility issues and we’ll try and see if they can be accommodated.

Your hosts are Maz (he/they) and Luke (he/him). We are both artists working in Brum - Maz is a digital illustrator specialising in queer reshaping of mythology, fairy tale and lots and lots of body hair. Luke works mostly in pen&ink, exploring themes of queer ecology, liminal spaces and hyperreal pen work.

Instruction will be given during the class, materials will be supplied but you’re welcome to bring your own tools should you like. Tickets are £15 with concessions available.
