Queer Life Drawing is back!

Hello and Welcome to Queer Life Drawing!
This is an online life drawing class that is open to everybody and works exclusively with models on the LGBTQIA+ spectrum. After a hiatus, Emory is now running Queer Life Drawing. We will run a monthly session this May, June, July, and August on the third Sunday of each month. Our weekly sessions will start again in September!

Models will be announced on Instagram, so please see our profile for more information! Our handle is @ThisIsQueerLifeDrawing

This class was started to raise the representation of LGBTQIA+ people in both life drawing classes and art! Historically queer folks have been misrepresented, underrepresented, and erased from art and art history. We aim to provide a safe opportunity for artists and models to work together and explore the queer figure, particularly the trans and disabled queer figure. We hope to see more representation in art as a result!

Our first session back will be on 19th May 2024 3-4:30pm BST with the wonderful Kiwie (they/she)

Accessibility
We currently use automatically generated closed captioning. Every pose length will be announced and written in the chat. There is no pressure or obligation to chat but we are a friendly bunch!
