Event Overview

Always wanted to learn how to draw fun human bits, but felt too silly to ask how? Well, this class is for you. Learn the basics of observational drawing and sketch classical sculptures at the Art Institute of Chicago: the naughty bits, in particular :-) Just for LOLs! (Actually, my instruction will help you learn to sketch whatever you want, not just nude human forms!)

We will explore figurative art at the Art Institute of Chicago, sketchbooks and pencils in hand, while capturing the play of light and shadow on the curves, bulges, arabesques, and blobs of light falling on forms- including those forms we are normally encouraged to overlook- Naughty bits! Also, while this may seem irreverent, I promise you will gain a new appreciation (and affectionate respect) for the Asrt Institute, art, sculpture, drawing, and ...naughty bits! Yay.

As you may imagine, this is totally tongue-in-cheek, and slightly risqué- though also a truly informative and fun adventure. Mature (-ish) people are encouraged to join the fun. Bring your all-season Valentine, your chubby hubby, your sweet sassy mo-lassie, your saucy posse, your best betch, or just your awesome self. Make a [naughty] picture you'll be happy to show off, and get inspired to draw more! 

1 8"x10" mat and glycine sleeve will be provided per student, so your art will be ready to hang! (additional mats/sleeves available for purchase)

What to Bring

sketching materials such as pencil, eraser, ballpoint pen, and portable sketchbook or clipboard. Colored pencils are a plus, but not required.

What's Provided

I will have extra colored pencils & backup drawing supplies, just in case.

What You Can Expect
  • Apply classic drawing techniques to drawing from classical sculpture
  • You choose: draw boobs, patooties, hoo-has, yoo-hoos, jibbly-jubblies, faces....
  • Draw all kinds of bits from great art...and laugh while doing it!
  • Take home a matted, frameworthy piece of art you made yourself
  • Meet people, learn, and laugh with them in a safe (and silly) environment!
  • Great for art dabblers of any experience level!

    I had so much fun, definitely want to come back for part two. I've been drawing nothing but butts since our class!
