POME Presents: Life Drawing with Bella de Jac

In a glorious celebration of art and the divine relationship between artist and muse, Bella de Jac will be hosting Life Drawing the second Monday of every month at POME.

Your host Bella de Jac is a renowned Melbourne burlesque artist and educator. Her work centres around the exploration of an array of feminine archetypes both tantalising and terrifying, creating a space for audiences and students that is equal parts sensual, playful, insightful and free of inhibition. Her previous work has included terrorising delighted audience members as a vagina dentata monster, playing naked jump rope, re-enacting the Birth of Venus and nine years as the Queen of the Burlesque Underground.

The first guest, Kerry X, is an experienced and sought-after life model and burlesque sensualist. A provocative performer providing the most intimate of audience experiences, Kerry X weaves an enchanting web with her unique blend of dramatically ritualistic performance art. With over seven years on stage and performances from the grand ballrooms of Melbourne to the dust bowl of Betoota, she has the experience and wisdom of a recognised Priestess weaving sensual spells over an enthralled audience.

Like the Pagan Goddesses of Old, Kerry X is an obscure and unique creature; and one every audience will delight in as they watch her unfold before their eyes. Come to the alter, it’s time to worship!

Each month Bella will be providing a fabulously entertaining and professional model, parameters to flex your drawing skills and a lovely space to sketch and socialise in. Whether you’re drawing stick figures or you’re a professional artist, everyone is welcome.

Grab your sketchpads and materials and part the red curtain to join us at POME for a monthly early evening drink and draw from Monday 11th of January. Basic materials will be provided for those who find themselves without pencil and paper.
