A male life model provides a perfect activity for hen parties.
I’ve been a life model for nine years and have been on the other side of the canvas drawing for longer.
I’ve been running hen party life drawing classes (tutor and model) for 8 years. Every weekend I’m entertaining groups up and down the M4 and further afield.
I love the sessions and have met some friendly ladies along the way. My main consideration when preparing is to be on the same wavelength as the group. My goal is for them to walk away having a had a laugh, a memorable experierience – and to be able to draw.
Communicating with the organiser in advance of the session is key. This allows me to ensure that the tone is perfect for the group. I offer a friendly professional and easy going session regardless of the audience.
Model, tutor, sketching and painting
I bring experience of drawing, modelling an easygoing attitude to make everyone feel at ease from the outset.
Many hen party companies offer life drawing as part of their package, but many don’t actually provide models that can actually hold a class and teach the group some drawing skills. I pride myself in being able to offer guidance and tips for them to start learning to draw. Individuals leave my classes thinking they’ve learnt something new in a fun environment.
You tell me to the best of your ability what type of group you are and what you expect from the event, and I will ensure that I pitch it exactly how you would hope it to be – and more.
My Hen Life Drawing and Body Painting classes are lively, creative, and as risqué as the group would like it to be. Above all, they are a lot of fun in a relaxed and comfortable space.
Areas I cover include Bristol, Bath, Hereford, Gloucester, Cardiff, Oxford, Swindon, Exeter, Plymouth and London (and everywhere in between).
I have also taken bookings in Brighton, Kent and up towards the Midlands, Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire but it will be at a higher per person rate due to the longer travel time. I do love to travel so distances are not a huge hurdle for me.
I’m actually the first person to introduce body painting as part of a life drawing hen party activity in the UK. I saw it on an Australian website many years ago and thought it would be a fun additon and complimentary to the hen party life drawing. I’ve done it since and it has proved to be very popular with groups. The groups really enjoy painting me with their fingers (doodles or full body designs!) and they find it a nice departure from the more serious drawing. Many also like the the fact that they can get up close and personal as well.
In the past years I’ve seen quite a few life models introducing it in their sessions, (cliché warning ahead!) but I am the original and best!
