Come along to this lovely, lively Life Drawing class taught by Adrian Dutton ( in 3 different venues in Central East London - Bethnal Green E2 and Hackney/Islington N1.

We have been getting together for serious drawing work (and the odd drink afterwards!) for 12 years. Newcomers always welcome! This class suits people of all levels of experience. Adrian has trained with some of the countries leading painters, such as Francis Hoyland, John Lessore, Ann Dowker, Tim Hyman and others. Adrian's teaching style is hands-on, affirming and very warm and friendly. But it is the athmosphere of the group itself that really makes this drawing class so special. Come along to check us out, or email  Adrian at for more info.

We now use 3 different venues - Mondays & Thursdays we are at Eastbourne House, Tuesdays we are at the Rose Lipman Building,  and Wednesdays & Fridays we are at the Garrett Centre: (click here for maps & address info)

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
