Into Life drawing - nude not rude exhibition

A new “Nude not Rude” exhibition has opened at Nantwich Museum of life drawings by members of the Nantwich Life Drawing Group.

The group has more than 300 members who all share a love of drawing the human figure.

The exhibition aims to put life drawing into a contemporary context while changing people’s perceptions of what drawing a nude model is all about.

Many of the original artworks exhibited will be for sale, as well as prints to buy in the Museum shop.

During each week of the exhibition, visitors can book onto guided “taster sessions” to explore different aspects of life drawing.

Each session will have a model available to draw from who will be draped or wearing a selection of museum costumes and props.

Visitors will be charged a small fee of £2 per person (free to under 16s) to cover the costs of models and drawing materials.

Bookings can be made via the Art Ticket app on The Nantwich Museum website or at The Museum shop.

The exhibition closes on Saturday May 4.

1. Make your mark on Saturday 23rd March 11.00am-12.00pm

    Remind me what year we are in??, “Nude not Rude ” I was thinking the narrative here sounds as though it was written in 1840. Words fail
