AMC Sundays at LARA – I – Frida

14 Oct, 2018 at 2:00 pm5:00 pm


Art Model Collective are thrilled to announce that will are starting a collaboration with LARA, bringing you your favourite and well-missed Sunday sessions at London Atelier Of Representational Arts in Clapham North.

Carla and Manko will host tribute to our favourite artist, Frida Kahlo, posing together in a combination of short and long, clothed and nude poses, set to specially curated soundtrack and live reading by our models.

Both AMC models have been posing at LARA for many years, but so far – only individually, in weeks-long sustained extended nude poses, usually in classic contrapposto…. that is, up til now!

This collaboration has been brewing for some time, and finally, our dynamic duo of hard-working full-time models are set to bring their own style, sparkle, vitality and glamour to the sober academic environment of the atelier.

Carla and Manko will plunge deep inside Frida’s creative mind to express our endless respect and admiration for the woman and artist, using the fascinating exhibition at the V&A as the perfect excuse. Let’s celebrate Frida in our own unique way, merging the artist and her paintings into a tableau vivant!

Let’s take the inspiration from the environment of this excellent classical drawing atelier and see what artistic cocktail our models can whip up at these relaxed, informal 3 hour Sunday afternoon sessions! It will be a truly unique blend of your beloved AMC events set in an academic environment.

These sessions will be untutored and open to every level of skill.

LARA provide chairs and drawing boards for all and there are easels available on a first-come, first-served basis.

We will have a selection of paper and free materials courtesy of GreatArt. Artists are encouraged to experiment with different media – varied charcoals, pastels, pencils, pens and even chunky markers. (You are welcome to use wet materials like inks and watercolours, but please bring your own).

Advance tickets are on sale via EventBrite, and the spaces are limited.
