Par-tay! The Artful Bachelorette is taking NYC by storm. Co-owner Samara Hodgson explains the latest bridal craze!


How does the Artful Bachlorette work, exactly? 

My partner, Fleur Childs, and I started it to get people back to their artistic roots by offering parties that incorporate nude figure drawing. 

What’s the rowdiest soirée you’ve ever thrown?

We have a ‘no camera, no touching’ rule, but at one party two women got topless with our model.

Where do you find male models?

We tried Craigslist, but 80-year-old men sans boxers would send in pics. Now we use modeling agencies. We want to have fun but also be respected in the art community.
