Art Macabre

Art macabre

Part of their This Mortal Coil season, Vivid Projects will be hosting a rather morbid drawing class later this month. On Friday 27 November London’s Art Macabre, purveyors of ‘death drawing’, will inject a lethal dose of theatricality, curiosity and playfulness into the art of drawing from life.

Create your own ‘memento mori’ designs with 21st century twists, sketch skeleton figures, nude flesh and bone. Live models will pose in theatrical tableaux, exploring personifications of death from around the globe to inspire your drawings. With drawing challenges and collaborative sketching games and a musical soundtrack to add to the atmosphere. Grab a drink from the bar, put pen to paper, and enjoy a fun, playful evening exploring the relationship between art, dying, and how death can be represented in colour and form.

Tickets are £12.50 in advance. Capacity is limited. Book a place soon to avoid disappointment.
