What sets Jankura Artspace apart from other art centers that hold life drawing sessions?
We feature a wide variety of models with alll body shapes and sizes, races and of course both male and female models which allow our participants to have lot more chances to draw something interesting each time.
We don't stick to the classical format of most nude croquis sessions in Korea. While we do have basic nude drawing and gesture drawing sessions, we also like to mix things up at least once a month with special costumed or themed drawing sessions. Everything from fetish and crime scene nights to ethnic and traditional clothing from around the world. We even have drawing nights with performance artists or poets and musicians standing in as our drawing subjects. 3. Atmosphere:
From the warm studio lighting (which makes everybody look nice) to the music and overall vibe, we know our studio is special and people come back for the sense of community and the welcoming atmosphere that we embrace. No stuffy, silent studio or talk radio for us. We like to groove while we draw:)
Plus there's always our BYOB policy if you need a little something to loosen up while drawing.
4. No perv policy:
A mature, adult environment can only be had when everyone follows the rules. We try to quickly identify and dismiss anyone not mature enough or suitable for the life drawing experience.
Fridays: 7:30-9:30pm long pose session. This is great for those wishing to take their time and get a more finished image produced. You can also move around and work on several short drawings during this log pose session.
Saturdays: 6:00-8:00pm short pose session. 3,5,10 & 20 minute poses for practice and gesture drawing work. 토요일 오후 6-8시: 누드 크로키
금요일 오후 7:30-9:30:고정포즈 누드 드로잉
Good for all levels. Tips and basic instruction can be provided for anyone in need, but this is mostly an open session for people to practice drawing and painting from the live model. Most sessions are nude, but we also have special costumed (themed) drawing sessions which are a lot of fun. Walk-ins are always welcome. No drawing experience is required to come give life drawing a try. 10,000won for one night or buy a "5 Sessions Card" for 40,000won which can be used for any life drawing session.
1회 참가비 10,000원 (5회 참가비 40,000원) We also have a variety of sketch books for sale as well as drawing supplies free to use in the studio. *sessions with nude models are for adults only.
