Life-Drawing Guiness World Record Attempt

Up to 30 naked models and dozens of life-drawing groups will get together in West End on Tuesday 6 March to try to break the record for the world's biggest life-drawing group.

And, if you like to draw, you're invited to go along and join in the fun. Put charcoal to paper and you could end up in the history books alongside all the other artists (and models) present on the night.

The event is being organised by Art Shed Brisbane, a West End business that sells art supplies and offers a wide variety of art classes. Art Shed is aiming to raise awareness of life-drawing groups and encourage more people to give it a go.

They'll do their part by providing paper and drawing materials, 20 to 30 male and female models, and an Arty Party afterwards. Participants will pay just $10 for the privilege of joining in, and will also get a $10 discount voucher to use at Art Shed.

Given that there'll be quite a few naked people involved in the night, Art Shed has put in place some sensible restrictions and safeguards.

Only over 16s can participate, no photography or video will be permitted, and there'll be security staff in attendance. Oh, and it's a drawing event only -- no paints permitted and no easels supplied (for purely practical reasons).

The event is being held at Colossus Hall, just round the corner from the Art Shed. You need to pay and register between 6pm and 7pm on the night (no registrations accepted after 7pm.)

Sadly, no. I'm neither a talented artist nor a suitable model. ;) But I do plan to drop by the Art Shed this weekend and ask how it went...

Great news, folks. The Art Shed had 491 people turn up and had to turn away queues of people for lack of room! And I think their website says that they did set a record. Yeeha. To check out a (suitably modest) photo of the event, go to And apparently they're going to do it all over again in October...
