Life Drawing Sessions: Nov - Dec 2017

You can read more about the session and book via the link here.

There will also be a further set of three drawing sessions on Tuesday evenings at 6-8pm from 28 November to 12 December inclusive. Please note the last session of the current block is Tuesday 14 November. To find out more about the sessions and how to join in, please contact us by phone or email.  

The guided life drawing sessions led by Alex at Drawing Projects UK 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.

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. We look forward to exploring drawing with you!
