AMC Sundays at LARA: Aubrey Beardsley multimodel life drawing tribute

12 Apr at 2:00 pm5:00 pm

£20

Join us for a luxurious 3 hour long life drawing session on a Sunday afternoon!

Right in the middle of the run of the much anticipated AUBREY BEARDSLEY exhibition at Tate (4 March – 25 May 2020), we are returning to London Atelier Of Representational Art (LARA) with a multi-model tribute to this opulent artist.

Beardsley, who was born in Brighton in 1872 and died of tuberculosis at the age of 25, titillated late-Victorian London with decadent scenes depicted in his elegant ink lines, often showing the strong influence of Japanese graphic art.

“Aubrey Beardsley shocked and delighted late-Victorian London with his sinuous black and white drawings. He explored the erotic and the elegant, the humorous and grotesque, winning admirers around the world with his distinctive style.”
(TATE)

Immersive soundtrack, costume/nudity, props, poses from the master’s own artworks, – held in an exclusive, inspiring atelier life studio with beautiful lighting, plenty of easels and large drawing boards.

Free art materials from GreatArt.

Open to all abilities.

Untutored, but please ask for advice from one of LARA’s alumni.
Fully accessible venue.

Tickets £20 advance only: here
