 PREHISTORIC: QUEENS OF THE BONE AGE

SATURDAY 4 OCTOBER, 2-4pm

A life drawing event with a deathly, theatrical and curious difference! Sketch models dressed as neanderthals through to homo sapiens as they portray prehistoric inspired poses for you to draw.

Featuring nude and costumed models, explore the earliest recorded expressions of art, ritual and burial by humans from around the world. We look at fertility rituals, representations of the female form in Palaeolithic sculpture, cave art and what prehistoric cultures believed about death and the afterlife.

Drawing materials provided (pens, paper, pencils, charcoal). Over 18s only.

PLEASE NOTE: As we’re at Latitude with Art Macabre, there won’t be a Global Curiosities workshop taking place on Saturday 19 July. We’re at FarmFest on Sat 2 August so won’t have an event that date either.

Where shall we visit next? The journey continues…all upcoming destinations and dates will be announced on this page. Sign up to our mailing list here if want to stay updated?
