Let the creativity flow in a lively atmosphere!

This workshop delves into creativity, moving away from the perfectionist teachings of traditional life drawing. You'll experiment with various image-making techniques, from continuous line drawing to pointillism, and be encouraged to think outside the box to create something new.

As described in Time Out Magazine 'It might look like a Full Moon party, but this evening of sketching is an experiment in light, colour, and texture. The models become ‘living sculptures’ covered in UV lights and reactive body paints. Trippy.'

Neon Naked Life Drawing offers a unique experience, focusing on the creation of unusual and expressive designs through vibrant living sculptures. The fusion of UV light, reactive body paints, and hand-crafted flamboyant accessories nurtures a creative and immersive atmosphere.

In this class, you'll delve into the world of colour, light, and texture through a series of short poses ranging from 6 to 10 minutes. Various drawing styles will be explained in advance.

While art supplies are provided, feel free to bring your own essentials like pencils, paper, and drawing boards, as well as fluorescent neon pastels and highlighters to add vibrancy to your artwork.

No prior experience is necessary, and assistance is readily available for challenging poses. Expect a fun and friendly atmosphere with a relaxed vibe—ideal for a unique evening out, whether it's a date, hanging out with work friends, celebrating a birthday, or hosting a hen party.

All designs and accessories are meticulously crafted by Jylle Navarro, an experienced artist with a strong focus on UV reactive materials and a background in multi-disciplinary art spanning several years. Her expertise is reflected in the unique and captivating designs that contribute to the extraordinary Neon Naked experience.

Time Out says 'A right royal boozer with more trimmings than one of its own Sunday roasts: gigs, film screenings, comedy, DJs and, obviously, loads of lovely liquids..'

  • A word from the chef:

    The Old Queens Head kitchen is currently being bossed by burger extraordinaires Lucky Chip. They've been bringing seriously incredible burgers to east London since 2006 and are now taking over Islington with their Kevin Bacon and El Chappo as well as monthly guest stars! You have seriously been missing out if you haven't got your hands on one yet.


Neon Naked Life Drawing
Neon Naked redefines life drawing through an immersive UV experience, injecting vibrant energy into the traditional. Its evolution spans over 7 years, surpassing 1000 classes, and now stands as a weekly event in various London locations. Originating from the creative mind of Jylle Navarro, once a fashion designer, now a visionary artist, Neon Naked finds its roots in experimental knitwear, a deep exploration of colours, and innovative creative direction. Jylle's artistic journey progressed as she completed her MA in Art and Science at Central Saint Martins. Here, she specialized in light-reactive materials, immersive installations, and conceptual performances, solidifying Neon Naked's position as a unique and captivating artistic venture.
