What we're about

This is a great group for anyone interested in drawing London's urban landscapes and parks, city landmarks, cemeteries, museums and galleries.

Sessions are very relaxed. Everyone splits up once a meeting point is picked out, so that we can all wander about to find something we're interested in drawing. Then at the end of the day and sometimes at lunchtime too we gather back together for a drink and to show what we've done. There is no tuition, but seeing other people's work is always a great way to see new techniques and ideas and get inspiration.

The group is entirely drop-in, so there is no obligation to enroll or attend every week, people just come when they can make it.

All sessions are absolutely free, all you'll need are materials you want to work with and a little money on your oyster card. All levels are welcome, hope you can join us!
