Life drawing and classes all typically unfold in the same manner: a model disrobes, budding artists commit their likeness to paper, and a wealth of potential masterpieces all focus on the naked human form. But at Magnolia's Art Class, that's just part of the equation. The other part? The folks behind the easel are also encouraged to drop their clothes.

Open to women and female-identifying participants, next taking place on Wednesday, March 20, and moving to new digs at Dulcie's Kings Cross, this art session is also a bonding session. It asks artists to embrace their own bodies while they're sketching someone else's, and celebrates confidence, diversity and empowerment in the process. And, it also lets attendees strike a pose as well — while there'll be an art model leading the charge, everyone can trying their hand at standing in their place.

Tickets cost $20, and the 30-person class kicks off at 6.30pm. Given the venue, there'll also be wine, cocktails and cheese available to purchase, which might help spark some inspiration.

How naked you get is up to you, based your own comfort levels — and the section of the bar where the class takes place will be closed off, and solely served by female staff. All drawing skill levels are welcome, too, with the session's teacher taking you through the basics. Just BYO dressing gown, sketch book, and drawing or painting tools.
