We'll be creating art and figure studies using nude artist models. I'll be on hand to bring you tutelage and a critical eye.

Models: Please do not post Directly onto page, send me your details directly, I'm happy to take them. Fair warning: local models close to St Albans & Stevenage get priority, London travel via public transport will usually exclude you from my roster, Trestle is a fair distance from St Alban's station and causes expense and punctuality issues. So local based models and models able to travel by car within an acceptable petrol cost distance will get priority.
