Welcome to the Edinburgh wing of our life drawing club – All The Young Nudes! You might have heard of us but thought…”I can’t draw”! We hear this every day and we’re hear to tell you…YOU CAN! Or in fact, maybe you can’t, but you can still get a lot out of spending 2 hours in the dark with some good tunes, scribbling away. You’re just about guaranteed to have a good time. There is no pressure at ATYN – no one wants to see your work. No one will judge you. You can bail out and sip your beer by the bar for all we care…Just come along, switch off your phone and take 2 hours out of your busy day to zone out.
We love sketching, drawing, posing, nudes, live music all with a drink in hand. That’s what you’ll get here. Check out our Instagram feed for a better idea of things we like. We also have a fast-growing YouTube channel which you should take a swatch at for some real live action…
We have run our weekly life drawing sessions since 2008 when we started at The Flying Duck in Glasgow. We’ve since moved around and we’ve settled at the fabulous Cabaret Voltaire in Edinburgh.
As well as our weekly life drawing clubs, we host life modelling training sessions at our home base in Glasgow. These have proved exceedingly popular and we’ll list more about them on our FB page and Instagram feed as we schedule them in. Any one can be a model, you just need to be willing to give it a go. Once you’ve met the ATYN staff and models and worked with the group, you can go on to model for other artist groups wherever you fancy. A great skill to acquire I’d say!
