Life Drawing Sessions with Alex Roberts Oct - Nov 2017

These guided life drawing sessions support each participant to draw from the life model and to develop their technical skills and proficiency in drawing from observation. Participants will gain skills, facility and confidence in their drawing practice.

The drawing sessions take place in our beautiful drawing studio at Bridge House, which is well-equipped with easels and drawing boards. We have small group sizes so that we can ensure individual attention. The life drawing sessions are suitable for adults of all levels of ability, including beginners and those seeking to refresh or update their skills. We provide basic materials - paper, pencils and charcoal - and have a great team of models to draw.

Advance booking is essential and you can book here for the block of four drawing sessions or a single session on 24 October. To find out more, please contact us by phone or email. 

Our aim is to build a community through drawing, and there will be a range of drawing activities and events on offer in the coming months as well as our exhibition programme and the Open to Draw projects. More information coming soon.

We hope you will join in The Drawing Network at Drawing Projects UK!
