Update: the classes are now from 6pm on a Sunday, same place, and ask for a $3 contribution.
I’d heard nudity was a bit of a taboo, that even art schools didn’t encourage drawing from life. I’d despaired of finding a life drawing class in Singapore that didn’t cost an arm and a leg and consist of tedious long poses.
Then I met a tall moustachioed German gentleman who pointed me in the right direction.
Run by the animation department at NYU Tisch Asia, these free sessions are all about short poses and movement, from 30 seconds to 15 minutes. I’ve missed them over the summer - melting into the crowd of complete strangers, sitting in the semi-dark of the sound stage, getting lost in the music and letting my hands move thoughtlessly over the paper. I’m rusty and a bit self conscious after so many years of not attending regular drawing classes, but I’ll be going along as soon as I get back from Jakarta next week.
Every Tuesday evening from 13th of September
