  • The Book Club London (map)

Our now annual celebration of Frida Kahlo, one of the world's leading artists. To coincide with the opening week of the V&A's blockbuster Frida Kahlo exhibition, we present a life drawing exploration of the vision and legacy of Frida.

Explore her unique Surrealist vision of pain, pleasure and passion. We will have two models, posing as contrasting aspects of Frida Kahlo's character and viewpoint. Recreating some of her self-portraits and paintings with flesh, flora, fruit and skulls.

From "Exquisite Corpse" drawing game warm ups to collage materials available to capture the colourful expressiveness of her art, we will do our best to conjure up the weird and wonderful world of Frida Kahlo at this workshop.

Grab a mezcal from the bar upstairs and sketch to a soundtrack of Mexican folk, jazz beloved by her and mariachi music.

Limited spaces...this one will sell out, mark our words!

Basic drawing materials and paper provided, along with some collage materials. But feel free as ever to bring your own favourite supplies. TICKETS HERE £15 Adv
