With guidance and support from our experienced tutor, enjoy the mindful experience of drawing the human figure. These sessions are designed to be accessible to everyone and build confidence in drawing.
Beginners are very welcome, do let the tutor know so they can give you extra support
The sessions also give professional artists who simply want the opportunity to work from a model a regular space to develop their practice.
Steve Dove will run our regular Thursday evening sessions and a team of different tutors will bring their own style to our Saturday classes.
The model will be nude, we use both male and female models.
Please remember no under 16’s but 16-18 year olds welcome if accompanied.
Sessions are held in our alternative studio space, a large Victorian hall at the other end of Porthmeor beach.

A supply of materials and paper will be available to borrow.
