Evening

Neon Naked is a new and unique life drawing experience that specialises in creating unusual and creative designs using vibrant and bold living sculptures. By combining an industrial UV light and reactive body paints with hand crafted flamboyant accessories its easy to get the creative juices flowing.

This class explores creative drawing, moving away from the perfectionist traditional teachings of life drawing. By trying out a number of different image making techniques from continuous line to pointillism the artists are encouraged to think outside the box and create more unusual imagery.

The class starts off with some quick and fun drawing exercises to get you warmed up. Then goes into longer drawing times with more exciting life images, experimenting with colour, light and texture.

Did you know?

As described in TimeOut Magazine as 'It might look like a Full Moon party, but this evening of sketching is an experiment in light, colour and texture. The models become ‘living sculptures’ covered in UV lights and reactive body paints. Trippy.'

Neon Naked is the most original take on life drawing I have ever come across, it really is as visually striking as the photographs suggest. The atmosphere is laid back, with the club style lighting making the space much more intimate than other classes I have attended. The emphasis is put entirely on creative expression and experimentation; I saw beginners and extremely skilled artists having the same amount of fun exploring the use of colour. Would recommend to anyone who wants to rediscover a love of drawing.

A lovely evening and a great introduction to various artistic styles. The teacher was knowledgeable and informative, and the model was excellent. A great date activity.

What a fun way to spend an evening! I went by myself, but it was easy to chat with others there. Exciting new experience drawing with neon pastels and under blacklight. Great to see everyone's work all together at the end. Everyone should try this at least once!

It was so much fun! I would advise getting there early to get the best colours. There was loads of choice tho of papers and colours and pens and chalks etc and the teacher and model were really lovely. Would def recommend. :)

This was my first time modelling for Neon Naked, and the professionalism and care shown throughout was impeccable. Everyone drawing enjoyed themselves, the set-up was unique, and the experience was one of the most fun evenings of work I've had in a while. Highly recommend this, both for drawing and for modelling.

Absolutely loved the class! I've been to life drawing classes before but this was so different which made it extra engaging and interesting. Probably will invest in some of my own Neon pens and attend more classes :)

Spectacular props and lighting, the tutor is very skilled and friendly. Able to suggest poses, taking great pictures and tutoring and all at the same time. I've learned that I love to use extravagant props and pose under the lights. Only concern is the low wage for what the class requires in terms of invention and considering that there is also body painting involved.

This class was something else, visually stimulating, fast paced and well organised, it was a treat! The model was really good, and the idea is still unique. I think I may go again!

An enjoyable life drawing evening. The teacher was enthusiastic and encouraging, giving ideas for each session. The evening just went too fast! The venue was a pleasant pub, providing good drinks and food. The staff could have been more helpful and taking orders more accurately.

About your host, Neon Naked Life Drawing

Neon Naked is an immersive UV experience creating a colourful twist on a traditional idea. It has developed over 2 years with nearly 50 classes and is now happening continuously every Monday.

The life drawing class was created and taught by the then fashion designer and now artist Jylle Navarro. She graduated from her BA Fashion degree 5 years ago and since then has completed a number collections specialising in knitwear and print design.

She specialised in looking at unusual reactive materials, using a bold contrasting colour scheme. She developed her work from fashion to go into many other areas such as festival, burlesque and costume design as well as creative direction for photography and music videos.

She is now studying at Central Saint Martins in an MA in Art and Science where she plans to further her work and learn more about the reactions of UV light with fluorescent and neon colours.
