NB: This is a drop-in class that runs every Friday during term time.

This is an ideal opportunity to drop in and practice drawing from a life model in a friendly and focused environment. Classes are based in our Art Room which will be set up by our facilitator. The facilitator is there to set up and time the model. There is no formal tuition in these classes. Poses and length of poses will be decided by the model and facilitator at the beginning of the class. The normal structure is shorter poses at the beginning and longer poses after the break. Please feel free to move around the room if the pose is not to your liking. The facilitator organises the models and will rotate the models on a regular basis (subject to availability).

If you would like to particular pose please speak to the facilitator or office before the class or before the next session.

To book:

It is on a first come first server basis.

There are 12 places available each week.

Please arrive at least 10 minutes before it starts to set up. You will not be able to enter the classroom after the class starts at 10 am. This is due to the disruption for other drawers and also to respect the privacy of the model. We will not accept bookings after this time.

Some weeks it can get booked up, so we advise coming between 9.15-9.30 if you want to guarantee a place.
