Life Drawing with ELSC

Screenshot 2019-04-17 at 10.52.18.png

WHAT'S THIS? ANOTHER LIFE DRAWING CLASS IN EAST LONDON? ORGANISED BY STRIPPERS? If drawing in unusual scenarios is your thing - it doesn't get much more unusual than this... Join us for another extraordinary and genuinely inspiring life drawing class with professional striptease artists modelling. The talented dancers of the ELSC are expanding their repertoire; no longer content to save their attributes for Saturday night punters, they are now performing incredible pole routines (with the added twist of holding still) for our more artistic patrons to capture them in motion.


Due to refurbishments our usual venue is not available for a while, so we thought we'd try out a new space. Looking Glass Cocktail Club is in the heart of Shoreditch, nestled perfectly between two of the longest running strip clubs in East London, Browns and the Olde Axe. Step through the looking glass into the secret back room bar, and you'll find we have transformed the space into our very own striptease boudoir.


We are giving artists a unique opportunity to draw strippers as they perform pole dance and striptease. The classes are entirely self-organised and hosted by a group called East London Strippers Collective (ELSC), a group of strippers challenging stereotypes and societal attitudes towards strip clubs, by inviting a new audience of onlookers inside. Our doors are open to professional artists, designers, sketchers, illustrators, animators, doodlers, students and first-timers alike.


We have worked out a section of the class called "strip-freeze" - a striptease routine interspersed with one minute poses. As the model performs a strip show on stage, our class-leader calls out "Freeze!" giving the class one minute to capture the pose before the model continues moving. This section is a warm-up exercise for the class, and an intense drawing experience. Once the model is naked, the length of the poses follow a more traditional pattern, with five, ten and fifteen minutes at a time.


The class will be led but not tutored. £15 per person. All levels of ability welcome, same for gender. All materials are available for a £2 donation (free materials for students who bring photo ID).


If the class is NOT fully booked on Meetup then you can turn up and pay on the door. If the class IS fully booked on Meetup then we cannot guarantee you a place, but we always have space for a handful of walkins, so come along early.
