Life-Sized Drawing with Nice Flaps

Wed 18 September

Hosted by Nice Flaps

In this session, the entire walls and floor of the back space will be covered with paper, turning the room into a huge canvas.

Three life models will pose for two hours, offering a mix of short and long poses. Participants will engage in a collective, large-scale life drawing activity, free to draw at any scale beyond the limitations of small sheets of paper. As the session progresses, the room will become a floor-to-ceiling gallery of shared artwork. As always, Nice Flaps aims to create a social environment where drawing acts as an excuse to meet new people and build common ground.


The priority is to have fun and relax – so there’s no pressure to create perfect drawings. No prior drawing skills are required to join this session. Anyone with an inkling to try something new is welcome and encouraged to join!

All drawing materials will be provided.

Nice Flaps

Nice Flaps is an artist initiative formed with the unanimous aim to gather and observe together, to provide time to concentrate, to look, to be, without an outcome in mind other than contemplation itself. They offer non-taught, experimental drawing sessions generally with a model, perhaps two; mostly naked, sometimes in costume; alone in the room, or mingling among props and sets. Collaborating with artists, institutions, and other artist-run spaces, they challenge the parameters of life drawing by asking, what does it mean to draw from life? How can it affect our daily perception of the world? Their program therefore expands beyond traditional life drawing that technically trains artists, instead creating comfortable welcoming spaces where first-timers and regulars alike can take part in an art event and share a collective moment with others. Nice Flaps has been running since 2019, and is organised and curated by The Hague-based artists Annemarie Wadlow (UK) and Alejandra López Martínez (ES).
