How do you see your outer self? How do you feel about it on the inside? These are the kinds of questions people are told to ask themselves in an adult art class, and yes, they often end up drawing their own genitalia, or someone else’s body.
But it’s not about the perfect line or form. The classes aim to help people tell their life stories, connect with their body, and perhaps discover some latent talent along the way.
Through the various phases of lockdown, these classes have moved online, allowing people to participate in greater privacy. And in anxious times, they’ve proved to be refreshing and therapeutic.
Sessions available include one-on-one workshops such Connect, by Goa-based artist Aru Bose, group workshops such as Art As (Expressive) Play by Sheena Dabolkar and figure-drawing sessions such as the ones conducted online by tattoo artist Shreya Josh.
