What we're about

A life class will show you how to draw expressively. You will be taught how to draw what you see and not what you think you see. You will develop your own style.

The sessions are tutored we usually start with one of a variety of start up exercises, for example moving to music, short 1-3 minute poses, drawing straight lines etc. All abilities are accommodated within the lesson. The class goes on to 2-3 longer poses with longer poses accommodated "creatively" for more experienced students. Sometimes we look at other artists work and how they have approached life drawing or materials etc. We use a variety of models and poses. All materials and paper provided. We also have full day workshops.

Life drawing sessions on Tuesday 11am-1pm and Wednesday 7-9pm. Beginners welcome. Advanced welcome. Untutored if you prefer. The cost is £13/£10 members*.

We have a cup of tea or coffee half way through and someone might be teachers pet and bring some biscuits. Sometimes we have student of the week, this might be someone we feel has improved or just cause they need some encouragement but I have the overall say.

Then come and join us in the pub for a drink.
