Figure Drawing vs. Social Media
Recently, we have had images reported on Facebook for Nudity, which results in the image being removed completely. To set something straight, Facebook and Instagram strictly prohibit pornographic or sexually explicit images – NOT drawings that were created for educational or artistic purposes. ⠀
Figure Drawing has played an important role in the artistic community for thousands of years and will continue to make an impact in ateliers and academies around the world.
If you are offended by the work that is being posted to Nitram Charcoal’s Facebook or Instagram page, please do not report it. Simply unfollow the page.
