Body Painting class

So my bucket list has me wanting to be body painted.  When the local venue offered a class on body painting, I jumped at the chance.  I didn’t have any idea what would happen – in the end, there were three models, suffering in the large warehouse in winter, and a known artist (of make up and painting bodies) who just said ‘go have fun!’.  Other people come from a make up background.  One woman and two friends were enjoying it as a birthday gift.  Everything was provided, including sugary snacks and some vino.  All in all, a good way to spend a night!

If you’re looking for quirky one off classes after work or on weekends, try The Workshop, which is in both Melbourne and Sydney.  I subscribe to their weekly email, which is a great way to scan if there’s anything of interest when I’m free.

    1. Sorry – click baiter I am! I do in fact want to be painted, I just don't find it comes up in life. I didn't get any 'take home' which probably would have been enough for me to want to 'use them up' get myself painted and delight in my non-naked naked ness!

  1. See – this is where I remember I am actually getting old (I forget, most of the time.)

    In my twenties I would have loved this. Now, I think I'd freak out slightly if I was in a warehouse painting models in winter. I'd want to sit them down and give them a coat and a hot chocolate!!!

    1. Yeap. I’d be tutting about the cold young things too. And I’d not accept their protestations that they were OK. I’d feel their arms.

    2. Yes there was a heater – but the poor guy wasn't that close. We were trained to ask after their well being, and the water used to wash brushes and get paint 'wet' was warmed. Small things

  2. Super cool, glad you enjoyed it! I don't think I'd be comfortable doing this with strangers, but it would be fun for hubby and I! Hopefully you'll get the opportunity to be painted someday 🙂
