Fight Club Drawing Group
Thursday 28th Oct // 7:30-9pm // £10 booking essential via Eventbrite

An exciting drawing experience unique to Studio KIND. 

Fight Club Drawing Group is a pop-up opportunity for people who enjoy the challenge of drawing people in movement.

There will be live sparring between Brazilian Jiu Jitsu students from www.yamajiujitsu.com on a timer set to 1 minute. They will then freeze for another minute when the timer goes off, all whilst wearing the traditional Gi. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is an exciting, flowing, mostly ground based martial art with the objective of controlling and submitting your partner.

 

Please arrive at 7.30pm to set up in your drawing position. The session will last for one hour from 8pm to 9pm reflecting the intensity of the authentic sparring and the drawing. Bring your materials, including a board to work on, a drink and a mask. Our group welcomes anyone, wherever they are on their artistic journey - we all learn from each other.

Please note, this group is only open to people over 18.
