What we're about
Soho Life Drawing is a non-profit drawing group in central London that aims to make life drawing affordable and accessible while paying our models a fair wage. We believe that creativity is an essential part of well-being that is often stifled by the demands of working life, inaccessibility or fear due to lack of experience. We want to change that.
Whether you're a professional, student, or amateur artist you'll find yourself at home at Soho Life Drawing. Located in one of London's most central locations, we provide an easily accessible and non-judgemental space for you to hone your life drawing skills. We offer a portfolio boosting mix of both short and long poses with new models every week, making us a great fit for professionals and novices alike. Our members come from literally all walks of life, so don't be afraid to drop by if you have no background in art--at Soho Life Drawing, you are guaranteed to find a supportive place to explore your artistic abilities.
Here's why you should start your week with Soho Life Drawing:
It's a Great Space!--Our sessions are held at one of London's best-kept secrets--the historic Quaker Meeting House, which provides an oasis of calm just minutes away from Leicester Square Station. Our room comfortably seats up to 45 people, and we provide several tables for people working in liquid mediums.
Short and Long Poses!--Our sessions begin with short, gestural poses and move up to a longer sustained pose. Our models are personally vetted professionals, and some of the best in the business. Our sessions are untutored, but we are more than happy to provide input and advice.
No Need to Bring your own Supplies!--We provide free use of clipboards, and pencils, paper, and rubbers are available on site. (Paper 15p, Pencils 20p, Sharpener 15p, Rubber 50p, Charcoal 10p)
Tea and Biscuits!--Yes, that's right. We provide tea and biscuits --and often homemade cookies-- to keep your energy up during the breaks!
Drop-ins Welcome!--To ensure your spot, we'd advise you to book in advance, but drop-ins are welcome.
So come by and check us out—we look forward to seeing you there!
