Course details

We are running sessions in our alternative studio space, a large Victorian hall at the other end of Porthmeor beach.

We are keeping people spaced apart at 2m plus which limits the number of places available.

You will only need to wear a mask when moving around or if the tutor comes close to help you. When working at your easel you can remove it.

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.


Drawing from the figure is a classic, traditional skill and these life drawing sessions are ideal for those wanting to learn and improve, build a portfolio or for beginners who would like to just have a go. With an artist tutor on hand to offer support and instruction it is ideal for those who would like feedback and guidance.

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.

Our members benefit from a £15 discount and membership costs £30/year.

WHAT TO BRING

Please bring your own drawing materials if you can but a small supply will be available to borrow. Paper will be made available.

No painting, at least for now, because we cannot manage students collecting water and washing brushes.

Please bring your own refreshments as we will not be offering tea and coffee in these sessions, yet.
