Life Drawing

Drawing / Figure

Course details

PLEASE NOTE:

Due to the need to social distance we are currently unable to run our usual life drawing sessions. We hope to reinstate these classes later in 2021.

In the meantime please join our Saturday Life Live sessions, running online every other Saturday morning 10am -12 noon – just £10. Click to see our ONLINE options.


Drawing from the figure is a classic, traditional skill and these tutored life drawing classes are ideal for those wanting to learn and improve, build a portfolio or for beginners who would like to just have a go.

Don’t worry if you haven’t got your own drawing materials. The studio has a good range of charcoal and pencils to borrow and a small charge is made for paper in various sizes.

In the future we plan to run sessions on Thursday evenings and all day Saturday. Different tutors bring their own style of teaching and we have both male and female models.

We want to keep Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings free from solvents so please keep to waterbased materials and drawing in these sessions.

If space allows Saturday afternoon sessions can be used for painting. Please bring in your own painting materials and equipment for this and only use low odour solvents.
