What we're about
Friendly and welcoming group for people of all abilities who are interested in practicing Life drawing and painting.
Our home location is just over a mile from J13 of the M1 at Husborne Crawley Reading room hall, which is easily accessed and convenient for Husborne Crawley, Aspley Guise, Woburn, Woburn Sands, Milton Keynes, Bedford, Flitwick, Ampthill and the surrounding area.
We also now run a second venue farther north at The Cock Hotel in Stony Stratford on Monday evenings. See listings for those events which are clearly marked with the venue in the title.
Both venues can seat over 20 artists easily, although we usually run with around 16 -18 of us. We always pose our models under studio quality lighting to create dramatic and sculptural shadows, which makes the job of drawing easier, and the resulting work more impactful.
This is a group for any ability, the only pre-qualification for entry is the desire to draw and create. Although it's an untutored group, help, support and advice are always freely shared and most people will find working with a group of mixed style and ability something that helps them to find and develop their own style.
If you're nervous about coming, ping us a message on here and we'll make sure we do what we can to alleviate your tension. Life drawing and portraiture is hard, but that doesn't mean it won't be fun!
We're here to help!
