Ariana Throne, owner of Awkward Fox Body Paint, will guide you through this three-month collaborative experience. Learn expert body painting skills, movement theory, and group performance exercises. No prior experience in performance or body paint necessary. Drawing inspiration from the House of Eternal Return, the program culminates in a live body-painting show inside the walls of Meow Wolf.

Body paint classes will include bodypaint brands and basics with brush and sponge, camouflage painting, UV paint techniques, airbrush, creative process, and posing.

Performance techniques will include viewpoints theory, collaborative shape and movement, improvisation with the body, body awareness and positivity.

Participants should be available for the entire process. There will be one make-up day if you need to miss a class or are sick.

The class will involve nudity, but we will work with comfort levels gradually. Live modelling/performing is NOT required if you would just like to paint! All body types, physical ability levels, and genders are welcome.
