What we're about

Untutored, drop-in life drawing in central London

We've got a great session running every Thursday at a central London venue, two models every time, and all the equipment and materials you need to get drawing. These are untutored sessions which means they're perfect for novices and experienced artists alike - no pressure, just have some fun doing your own thing.

One of the the best things about Covent Garden Life Drawing is the artists who attend. A really diverse group of cool, friendly people, and genuinely mixed ability. It's very sociable both during the tea break and at the pub afterwards.

So why not come and join us?
