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, January 22 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.

This time around, tickets cost $27 and, given that Australia is still burning, proceeds will go towards helping communities and animals affected by the current bushfire crisis. All 100 percent of the ticket price will be split and donated to the NSW Rural Fire Service, the RSPCA and WIRES's Emergency Wildlife Fund. You can also tack on an extra donation when buying a ticket through the Eventbrite page.

Given the venue, there'll also be wine, cocktails and cheese available to purchase.

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 teacher Kate taking you through the basics. Just BYO dressing gown, sketch book, and drawing or painting tools.
