“I sometimes think there is nothing so delightful as drawing.” – Vincent Van Gogh Join me at Kester Thomas, the cozy and elegant Champagne & Cocktails Bar in the heart of Copenhagen, for an intimate session of figure drawing, enveloped by the warm and sparkling Xmas atmosphere. Over the course of 2 hours I will guide you in drawing and capturing the shape and movement of the beautiful male figure, all while enjoying delicious cocktails in the company of old and new friends. Our professional figure drawing model will be posing in an intimate setting, while you will observe the gesture of the movement, and draw the body in various positions and expressions. The session will include some of the basic drawing instructions & demonstrations, various exercises to get you going, and tips & tricks on how to get from a few simple lines to a recognisable human figure, by capturing the mood and movement of the model. At the end of the session you will have a collection of drawings that you will take home with you. Suitable for the seasoned and the curious, this experience is designed for everyone. For those who want to practice their skills and learn new techniques, and for those who have never drawn before and want to experience figure drawing in a relaxed informal atmosphere. Our host at Kester Thomas will prepare a special Xmas cocktail inspired by the glowing flavours of this festive time: a homemade white Glögg based on champagne ✨ (non-alcoholic option available). We can host up to 15 people at Kester Thomas, so book your ticket in good time ;) I look forward to seeing you! Ticket Includes: • Admission to a 2 h figure drawing experience; • Step by step drawing instructions for everyone to follow; • All the art materiel needed, including drawing boards, drawing paper, pencils, charcoal; • Poses by a professional figure drawing model; • A delicious welcome drink. Non-alcoholic options are also available. Please inform us upon arrival if you require a non-alcoholic drink. The session will be conducted in English. What is Figure Drawing also known as Croquis? Figure drawing is quick and sketchy drawings of a live model. Drawings are usually made in a few minutes, after which the model changes pose and another sketch is drawn. It is a mindful practice as it connects you to what you are looking at, training your eye-hand coordination and freeing yourself of the expectation of a "perfect" drawing. Drawing the human figure is an excellent way to improve skills in observational drawing and is a wonderfully stimulating and challenging exercise. Spending time drawing another person also encourages empathy, and strengthens problem-solving and critical thinking skills. More than that, it's fun and the satisfaction of drawing and mark making releases endorphins, so you get happy and relaxed.

Kester Thomas is a cozy Champagne & Cocktail bar in the heart of Copenhagen. The venue itself is intended as a tribute to a famous bartender – Kester Thomas – who developed his whole career in London. The English capital represents tradition and cradle of hospitality, leading craftsmanship and innovative approach to service and bartending. Unfortunately, Kester Thomas passed away in 2013, but his legacy and passion for hospitality still remain intact and alive behind every drink served in this venue. In here, you will find every element that any place should have to be considered, in Danish terms, as “hygge”: intimate atmosphere, low light, and a charming decoration. You will notice this especially upstairs, where you will have the feeling that the place should not have looked much different back in the 19th century. Piles of books, paintings, candles and the crackling of the fireplace during the Danish cold winter will offer you the perfect environment to enjoy a beverage in good company. To accompany your cozy experience, Soul Jazz & Modern Jazz music tunes are carefully selected to create the perfect ambiance and atmosphere. Our “Champagne & Cocktails” concept is offering a large selection of champagne by the glass or by the bottle, serving champagne cocktails and seasonal cocktails to enjoy with good company!
