We meet in Clissold House, usually in the Drawing Room which is the same level as the cafe. A nude model will pose, surrounded by people drawing, some standing at easels, some sitting on chairs with sketchbooks or drawing boards. Basic materials are available (charcoal and paper) including drawing boards and some easels. This is a drop-in life class, which repeats every Thursday morning 11.15 a.m till 1.15 p.m. A drop-in life class simply means you can choose to come on the day, without the need to book. You pay £10 before the session begins. It is OK to be late, just come in and start drawing ! Charcoal and paper is 25p. Beginners are very welcome. The poses will start short ( 2 mins ) then get longer : 5 mins, 10 minutes, 20 minutes. There will then be a 15 minute break, around 12p.m, when i will usually serve free tea, biscuits and chocolate. After this there is one long pose until the end ( about 35 minutes ).
During the class i will go around teaching one to one, talking to you, unless you prefer me not to. There is no pressure.
