Join Megan and Andy for an evening of naked drawing, socializing, and snacks! Your hosts will pose for short and long sketches, allowing you to hone your drawing (and social) skills along the way. Attendees will have an opportunity to model, though this is optional. This class is for pencil/pen sketch only. Due to space limitations, no easels or paint will be allowed. All skill levels are welcome. Please bring your own art supplies. We will have a few things, but feel free to bring non-alcoholic drinks or light snacks.

Schedule:

 7:50 - doors open, clothed mingling
8:10 - doors closed, brief preamble, disrobing
8:30 - 60 minutes of live model sketching with brief breaks
9:30 - socializing, sharing snacks
10:00 - event ends, clear the space

 Just Naked’s Principles - PVC

Participation: We ask that you are fully engaged at our events. Yes, getting naked is an experience in and of itself, but please arrive with curiosity and the energy to participate in the theme of the event. Another facet of participation is arriving with a clear mind. While responsible BYOB is sometimes allowed, visible intoxication is not.

 

Vulnerability: This Principle arose from the need to clarify the subjectivity of being naked. A woman going topless publicly, however legal it might be, is likely to arouse a negative response from most crowds. For this reason, we accept that a woman’s edge of vulnerability might mean keeping their bottoms on at our events. For men, we invite you to discover your edge of vulnerability in other ways. Perhaps you cross your arms during conversation? Uncross your arms to feel what that’s like. Maybe you’re afraid of looking stupid when you dance? Attend our Movement and Connection event to explore that fear and move beyond it. If you do not identify with the male or female archetypes, or are transitioning gender, please do whatever suits your needs. Our Builders are knowledgeable about these experiences and eager to help you.

 

Cohesion: For Just Naked, Cohesion means connecting with others in the spirit of openness and respect. When we do this collectively, we create social unity. In this unity, we are most effective at normalizing naked within the local and global communities.  Respect means treating others how they would like to be treated. This may be difficult to intuit, so we ask that you familiarize yourself with our full FAQ.
