This Take Part activity is now pending confirmation until further notice as we attempt to arrange an alternative date with facilitators. We’d like to get Summer term started 05.05.20 and as soon as there is further information available we will contact bookers directly.

Please wait for us to contact you as we deal with a high volume of requests at this time. Thank you for your support and understanding.

An informal untutored life drawing session. Everyone welcome, from beginners to experienced artists. A great chance for a weekly arty-social, plus the bar will be open during most sessions, so you can grab yourself a drink.

The model will start the session with a warm up pose for around 20-30 minutes, followed by several quick poses of 2-5 minutes for rapid sketches. After this, pose duration will continue to increase before finishing the session with a pose lasting between 40-60 minutes.

The model will hold difficult poses for between 2-5 minutes, but during longer poses will adopt a much more comfortable form to allow for this extended duration.

Materials are not supplied so please bring along your own. The rooms is set up with tables and chairs so you may want to bring an easel.

The basic life drawing starter kit would include some decent pencils or sticks of willow charcoal, a rubber, some paper – preferably at least A3, and a sharpener. There is a sink in the room if you would like to use paint.
