What we're about
Upcoming events (4+)
Thursdays from 7pm-9pm
Working from a live nude model, you will be taken through a range of concepts and methods which will really bring focus to your work.
Tonal drawing, where we describe form by observing the relative lightness and darkness of our subject, is central to this course.
We cover strategies for dealing with challenges such as proportion, perspective and foreshortening.
An understanding of anatomy really helps to bring clarity to figure drawing so we’ll be raising awareness of body structure.
Heads, hands and feet are looked at individually, understanding what’s going on makes things easier to draw.
We’ll look at how other artists have worked to inform our own.
This is a group for artists who have done some life drawing and want to improve through practice, demonstration, tuition and critique. If you’ve started off with our Introduction to Life Drawing this will be the natural pathway for you and will bring you to a new level of accurate representation. The tonal dimension to the course is also a proven pathway to painting the figure.
We are delivering this class with Zoom and in person.You can attend individual sessions via Zoom or at the studio (email us to [masked])
£10.00 – £225.00
This life drawing and painting session has returned to the studio with a maximum of 13 socially distanced slots available each week to pre-book online. We are also running this weekly session as a Zoom session.
Long pose life painting and drawing. Usually the same pose held for two weeks so that you can produce a sustained piece. It’s untutored so you’ll be left to get on with it yourself although advice is always available. Talking to other artists will usually bring the objectivity required to discern the next step.
Further details can be found here: https://www.dulwichartgroup.co.uk/saturday-morning-zoom-drawing-and-painting/
Cost is £15-£25 a session.

For anyone serious about getting better at drawing whether you are a complete beginner or wanting to improve on what you’ve got.
Mondays from 7pm-9pm
How we teach
We don’t think there is only one way of drawing so we introduce several different approaches to capturing the figure including contour, gestural and schematic drawing, and provide the tools for proportional drawing. It seems that most of us find one approach suits us better than the others and we encourage people to notice what works best for them and go with it.
We demonstrate so you can see an artist tackling a problem and learn visually and we also interact with you individually to support you as you assimilate what has been shown and discussed.
Whilst this is now primarily a studio based course we still offer places on Zoom on a drop-in basis, you can choose individual Zoom sessions from the drop down.
