Neon Naked is a 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 it's 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 several different image-making techniques from continuous line to pointillism the artists are encouraged to think outside the box and create more unusual imagery.

Neon Naked is an immersive UV experience creating a colourful twist on a traditional idea. It has developed over 2 years with nearly 100 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…

Kamilla - May 11th
Not what I expected. The venue was the dowstairs of a pub on a quiet night and the drinks were not great. The pens they gave us were all dried up and I couldn't see anything I was putting on paper. The plus side is the staff were friendly.
review
Dom - May 5th
A really unique life drawing class, with the teaching just right- you can ask if you need help, otherwise just progress on your own. Nein lights and drapes on the model make for exciting and very colourfull pics. The pub venue means there is a drinks break, with some (maybe needs a bit more time?) chance to socialise.

I had modelled for Neon Naked a couple of times and that was one of the most exciting experience I’ve ever had. Jylle is so a natural gifted artist, I would recommend anyone interested in modelling in this class to try it.

Neon Naked life drawing class is such a great way to spend an evening. I really liked the guided instruction , and the pace of the glass. The venue was great, a nice pub where you could grab a glass of wine and the relaxed atmosphere
review
Kerry - November 18th
I had a lot of fun! I have done quite a lot of drawing in the past and this was by far one of the more fun and experimental classes I have done! In terms of learning – I can't in all honesty say that much was especially new to me – but the teacher was really great and I could see that a lot of others were getting a lot out of the class. The venue was good – lots of space to see and draw in a separate basement room of the pub (which also seemed very friendly). I wouldn't necessarily recommend this class for people who want to learn to draw but I would certainly recommend it for those who want to step out of their comfort zone and explore colour (or what you can and cannot see in blue light!).

Dena Dabbas - November 18th
I attended a session a few months ago and it was lovely. The teacher was very enthusiastic, constantly engaging all the artists. I've never taken part in a neon drawing class so its great to take part in such unique opportunities around London! Will definitely visit again.

Learning drawing using at least 3 different methods, really relaxed and chilled atmosphere! The colours under uv light look amazing 😊

I’ve been going to and teaching life classes for years. Jylles's classes were fun, innovative and chilled. A very unique and enjoyable perspective on a normally traditional subject!. Have returned many many times.
review

A class full of energy, its fast, its different its super creative, all can be done whilst sipping a wine!! The teacher helps you to explore different styles and techniques. Don't worry if your a beginner or on your own its a very easy going environment
review
Lauren - October 20th
Not what I initially expected but enjoyed it nevertheless. Very fun little tasks that ranged from a quick sketch, to a longer drawing session. The teacher was friendly and encouraging, and have suggested this to a few friends. Venue was nice, and fitted everyone in.

Misha - October 20th
I have always been creative and enjoy drawing in my spare time. This class was amazing it helped me to be creative in a way I haven’t experienced before. All experiences are welcome with the freedom to be creative!
review
Georgie - October 20th
A great class suited to a range of skill levels; the teacher was good at leading exercises and giving tips to beginners but also happy for more advanced artists to just get on with things. Really fun, could go alone or with friends - will definitely be back!
review
Kate Fahy - October 20th
I loved this class. It was really unpretentious and creative. I enjoyed the warm up exercises the most, drawing not looking down, Mark making or not taking your pen off the paper. I made some interesting images and felt inspired afterwards. I would 100% recommend.

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. :)
review
Kathryn - September 2nd
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!

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.

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!

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.

Really unique and fun class. Model was beautifully dressed up and the neon art materials were really interesting to use. Would definitely go again and have told a bunch of people about it!

Tasmin - May 14th
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 :)

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.

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.
review
James - May 13th
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.
