The sessions are friendly and relaxed, in a small group set-up, with a least one tutor to supervise and advice.
We use a wide variety of professional models. The poses will range from 5 to 20minutes with a longer pose at the end and a short break in the middle.
We provide easels, drawing boards and chairs as well as basic drawing materials (HB pencils, charcoal, new prints paper, eraser and sharpener). You are more than welcome to bring your own materials if you wish.
A1 cartridge paper available at 40p per sheet.
There are 10 spots available per class; priority will be given to those who book in advance; if spaces are available thereafter, these will be filled on a first come, first served basis.
The city is a fascinating environment with richly diverse spaces and landscapes.
Drawing and exploring a living city which is fast paced will allow you to express how you feel about the place where you live or just passing through.
The sessions, all in easy reach of our studio near Ravenscourt Court Park, will allow you to feel relaxed and confident drawing in an urban environment.
The aim of the classes is to capture the essence of the location, creating images with a sense of place and discovering ways to portray the urban locality through both quick and longer drawing exercises.
Each class will comprise 6 students. This will allow the tutor to provide one-to-one tuition for each individual student during the session.
Students will bring their own material for sketching.
