“ A lovely space, friendly, intense and hard working atmosphere. Group co ordinated by two sensitive souls......... A Variety of teas, biscuits, pizza, crisps and liquorice allsorts at break. Free art materials include drawing materials as well as newspaper and use of easels. Well lit, spacious, with committed artists where there is a nice balance between being an artist and being social and yet there is no pressure to be either. A unique find in London... ”

“ I discovered the class last summer and now come regularly two to three times a week. Best drop-in class in London with great models, artists. Newsprint paper is free which is perfect for beginners and all that for an incredible price. It is also really social unlike other classes and I met plenty of new friends. ”

“ A great life drawing experience whatever level you are. ”
— Alison R. on Jan 13, 2014.
“ I attended my first class on Friday and had the most wonderful experience, everyone was so friendly and willing to give advice. I had not really drawn seriously ever, but the last time I did half serious drawing was 40 years ago. The models were professional and friendly, there is nothing negative that I can say about the meeting, everything is provided, paper, pencils etc so you do not have to lay out a fortune to give it a try. I cannot wait until my next visit ”

“ 6 reasons why this group is one of the best life drawing groups in London (and I have been to quite a few) 1. Value. It's great value especially if you take advantage of paying in advance for a block of 6 classes. 2. Environment - There is plenty of space for all. It's quiet and undisturbed. 3. Properly equipped. Unlike some other London classes Adrian supplies easels, boards, and drawing materials. He had paper available to buy. 4. Tuition - Adrian will respond to your needs. If you want some advice he is available and professional in his approach. He's helped me enormously. A generous and thoughtful person. 5. Great models. Adrian supplies a good balance of male/female experienced models. 6. Social - It's a very friendly class. In the break there's teas, coffee, snacks and an invite to the pub afterwards - a great way to meet new people. ”

“ I echo what's been said. In addition, I recommend this class because Adrian has great ability in getting you to really think about HOW to draw from life. He achieves this two-fold: lecture as you work - where you will learn a range of complementary approaches and techniques that will assist you in getting the subject matter onto paper; one-to-one tuition - where he will help you refine your drawing/painting. In both cases you will hone your skills (at whatever level you are), not just in drawing/painting, but in seeing, experiencing, and understanding. This makes for great learning, development, and discovery, and a thoroughbly enjoyable experience. ”

“ This group caters for all abilities. Adrian Dutton is a professinonal artist and drawing tutor. Having witnessed him in action as one of his models I'd recommend his tutored sessions to anyone, whatever their level of experience. ”
— CliffordAlls on Jun 14, 2011.
“ The group is a very nice and friendly bunch and Adrian is a cool and well educated tutor - he's quite non-intrusive too, only giving his advice if you need it or if you ask for it. There is an excellent rotation of models of both sexes and of different ages, and, last but not least, great selection of tea, coffee and nice cookies (sometimes hand-made!) in the break. Oh and after the class you can join the group for a pint at the Camel, a cosy local pub, which is always a great way of meeting new like-minded people and catch-up with the usual suspects :) ”
