Croquis / life model session & art chat

An evening croquis / life model session followed by an informal chat about your art, or someone else’s art. Free of charge. Bring your own materials (we will provide some basic papers and pencils). There are tables and a couple of easels available. Bring floor cover if working with oil paint or other potentially messy materials.

What is a croquis / life model session?
Croquis or life drawing is a traditional exercise of a quick drawing or painting of a nude live model. The sketches are usually made in a few minutes, after which the model changes pose. The poses can also be longer based on agreement of the participants and the model. For this session, you can expect a combination of short (1–5 min) and slightly longer poses (5–15 min).

Flat Octopus believes in the beauty of the human body and the usefulness of the traditional life-model drawing. We want to have more of them in Stockholm. This is the first of a series of croquis session, so come and try it out with us.
