Conscious Life Drawing Series  |  Black bodies, white canvases: Representation of the black body in contemporary visual art 

  • Lightening Society Lofts 245 Varet Street Brooklyn, NY, 11206 United States (map)

Life-drawing session honoring models of color, of all shapes and sizes.

This workshop is an invitation to challenge the canons of fine art and traditional representations of female/male nudes.

The life-drawing will be followed by a conversation about the visual representation of black subjects and “blackness”. It will also be an opportunity to survey and engage in the ongoing debate surrounding appropriation of race and themes of black suffering in contemporary art. 

Price: $20 for class + wine
