The venue is 2 minutes walk from the Tube Station (District/Circle line stop Earls Court) - a beautiful traditional pub with a laid-back, good-natured atmosphere and a whole folly of traditional ales and hearty food on offer! The class will be run in the same fashion as all our existing popular classes across East and Central London (to see our other classes, click here to view our meetup diary ( We work with some of the (in our opinion) best models in the business and a mix of challenging short, mid-length and longer poses.

All your existing prepaid block bookings, vouchers & "Freedom Passes" are valid, and the price remains the same as for all our other sessions: COST: The cost per class is £10 per evening or £42.50 for a block of 5 sessions if you want to prepay.

What we're about

Come along to this lovely, lively Life Drawing class taught by Adrian Dutton ( ) in 4 different venues in Central East London - Bethnal Green E2, Hoxton E2 and Clerkenwell EC1R.

We have been getting together for serious drawing work (and the odd drink afterwards!) for 12 years. Newcomers always welcome! This class suits people of all levels of experience. Adrian has trained with some of the countries leading painters, such as Francis Hoyland, John Lessore, Ann Dowker, Tim Hyman and others. Adrian's teaching style is hands-on, affirming and very warm and friendly. But it is the athmosphere of the group itself that really makes this drawing class so special. Come along to check us out, or email Adrian at for more info.
