The bizarre class to end all bizarre classes returns, looking like a cross between a Full Moon Party and an afternoon at the Royal Academy. This evening of sketching is really your chance to experiment with drawing in all manner of colours and textures, as you scribble your impressions of artists daubed in UV-reactive paint and covered in glowing lights.

Neon Naked is a fun life drawing suitable for all levels. And no matter why you attend the session, you ll be challenged like in no other class. Jylle encourages the attendees to use new techniques, different perspectives and maybe even to draw with your non dominant hand. The outcome is always spectacular and unexpected. Can highly recommend!!
I love these classes! I’ve been to a few at different venues, and they are always a lot of fun.
I’m an artist, so I attend quite a few life drawing classes around London, however this is my favourite for sure. What I love is how accessible the class is; usually I attend life drawing classes on my own, as they can be quite boring for my non-arty friends. However, I always take a few friends with me to the Neon classes, and they love it! The organiser gives you drawing ‘challenges’, (eg, drawing using only dots, or draw without looking at the page), which makes it really fun for everyone, artists and first-timers alike!
All the art materials are provided too, which is great.
Plus the models just look brilliant! They have lots of neon props and accessories to pose with, which make the poses more dynamic than your usual class.
Highly recommend to anyone who wants to do something a little different :)
I’ve attended this fun class last monday not knowing what to expect from it at all... well i was so pleasantly surprised as the whole experience was real unique and something you definitely never did before or possibly will ever do! The atmosphere is very relaxed and the venue is real cool, you’re allowed to order drinks and food beforehand to have with you during the class, cool neon art supplies are provided and the lovely Jylle that runs this fabulous class guides u through it throwing fun disihibiting challlenges that cleverly allow you to learn how to think ‘outside the box’ making it enjoyable for everyone and all levels of experience!!! Not to mention the stunning neon spectacle that looking at the models offers!! Beautifully bodypainted and wearing the most creative costumes and props handmade wonderfully... i would highly recommend this class to anyone that doesn’t wanna miss out on a very surreal dream like evening to remember and enjoy! Also the perfect venue to socialise and meet other interesting people!! ;)
A fantastic class I have been attending since the classes first started and still enjoy them. Jylle keeps things fresh and constantly changes the costumes models and lighting. I've seen my drawing skills massively improve with some fantastic guidance combined with a relaxed drawing atmosphere. Would highly recommend this to anyone weather you are an artist or have nver picked up a pencil in your life. (She also provides fun neon crayons!)
Must do experience, takes the average drawing class to the next level. Lady that does the classes gets everyone involved and constantly mentains a great energy throughout the class. Honestly thought it would just be your average drawing class, but overrall experience was great. Art supplies are provided, very interactive., can order food+drinks to your table. Cannot fault the class.
A refreshing take on life drawing.
Having been to many classes through school and university, which was very restrictive, I can honestly say that the freedom to be creative has inspired me in whole new ways. Bringing an element of originality into an otherwise stagnant field.
Drawing in a dark room so as to appreciate the neon drawings and materials on the models body, this class is marketed more towards amateurs who want a fun, engaging and accessible way to art and drawing. However, if you’re a more experienced artist, this class won’t be of any value to you. The model constantly moved from her ‘fixed/still life’ position, making consistent sketches difficult. All her positions were also virtually the same. Drawing materials were somewhat low in stock. The coordinator constantly talked to attendees (suggested different techniques) and blocked my view which I found frustrating, but may be helpful for some. Overall I didn’t find it to be a very professional class - but I don’t think that’s the point of it. Personally I would give it a miss.
