About Nude Life
We want to bring life drawing to the contemporary, digitally-focused world allowing people to escape life’s daily stresses while promoting self-love, expanding creativity and bringing mindfulness to everyone.
Nudity has always been a taboo subject. But, here at Nude Life, we think the conversation should be less focused on the negatives and instead celebrate what’s SO right: the beauty of the human form in all its glory.
OUR VISION: THE MEANING OF (NUDE) LIFE.
Since opening our doors in 2015, we’ve created fun activities everyone can participate in. We do this with our innovative classes, passionate and dedicated team, and striving to facilitate personal growth and impact everyone we do business with.
Whether it’s a birthday, hen party, corporate event or public life drawing class, our life drawing sessions suit all levels of ability – from total beginners to seasoned artists. Plus, you’ll even leave the event with new skills.
