Body Positive Life Drawing For Teenagers

Lee Krasner

Spirited bodies

Esther Bunting of Spirited Bodies will guide you towards finding body acceptance through life drawing.

Taking inspiration from Lee Krasner's independent spirit as a strong female role model, breaking new ground and succeeding as a woman artist, this life drawing workshop invites young people to draw and listen to an experienced female life model in a fun and relaxed session to help build up confidence. 

Life drawing offers an opportunity to look closely at real bodies as part of a creative process, and also provides a healthy alternative to the many filtered and airbrushed images of bodies we see every day in the media and online. Drawing the natural human form in all its variety can help people appreciate their own wonderful uniqueness and accept themselves the way they are.

For ages 12+. Under 14s must be accompanied by an adult.
Running time: 2-5pm

The workshop will be led by Esther Bunting of Spirited Bodies, a group that has been using life drawing and life modelling to help people gain body confidence since 2010. As a life model herself, Esther has worked in many art venues around London and across the UK, as well as creating events for venues such as the Royal Festival Hall.
