Life Drawing with East London Strippers Collective first launched in 2013 as a natural progression from the age-old practice of hiring professional harlots and hussies as models for art.
The ELSC class is a fast-paced life drawing class often featuring aerial pole poses.
As part of their workshops, they have developed a section called ‘strip-freeze’ – a striptease routine interspersed with one-minute poses. As the model performs a strip show on stage, the class-leader calls out ‘Freeze!’ giving participants one minute to capture the pose before the model continues moving. This section is a warm-up exercise for the class, and an intense drawing experience. Once the model is naked, the length of the poses follows a more traditional pattern.
