What we're about

Come along to this lovely, lively Life Drawing class taught by Adrian Dutton ( http://www.adriandutton.com ) in 4 different venues in Central East London - Bethnal Green E2, Hoxton E2 and Earls Court SW5.

We have been getting together for serious drawing work (and the odd drink afterwards!) for 15 years. Newcomers always welcome! This class suits people of all levels of experience. Adrian, Mark and Tom are all professional artists and their teaching style is hands-on, affirming and very warm and friendly. But it is the atmosphere of the group itself that really makes this drawing class so special. Come along to check us out, or email Adrian at info@adriandutton.com to find out more.

We now run different life drawing groups every weekday evening from 4 different venues across Central & East London:

• Mondays: London E2, Hoxton: 83a Geffrye St, Hoxton, E2 8JA

• Mondays: London SW5, Earls Court: The Rembrandt Sampling Room, The Bolton, Earls Court Rd, SW5 9BQ

• Tuesdays: London E2, Hoxton: 83a Geffrye St, Hoxton, E2 8JA

• Wednesdays: London E2, Bethnal Green: Garrett Centre, 117 Mansford St , Bethnal Green, E2 6LX

• Thursdays: London E9, Hackney: Royal Inn on the Park

• Fridays: London E2, Bethnal Green: Garrett Centre, 117 Mansford St , Bethnal Green, E2 6LX

We have great details on each individual session, maps, directions & photos of the venues etc. inside each individual meetup description. So click on one that interests you and all the details will be displayed! And if in any doubt or you cannot find us, phone 07966 925 723, or email adrianmarkdutton@gmail.com
