Life Drawing

Drawing / Figure

Course details

PLEASE NOTE: We are hoping to start running life drawing again in July but we expect we will need to preserve social distancing measures. Therefore we will be capping numbers at 10 and only run sessions in our largest studio. This means we have needed to increase the price to £30 (£15 members) to cover the cost of the tutor and model. You will however benefit from more contact time with the tutor.

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.

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.

Sessions run 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.

Once a month Saturday sessions are held in the smaller Roy Ray studio with space for just 10 people. On these occasions please only use drawing materials due to the limitations on the space. 1 July – 1 Oct we will not be running sessions in our smaller studio so we can preserve social distancing measures.
