COVID19 statement about our classes

As part of stepped up measures to avoid non-essential travel to curb and contain the spread of covid-19, it is with deep regret that we have decided to postpone our life drawing classes until further notice. This is a difficult time for the arts, with many galleries, museums and other public spaces being closed to the public.

I would like to say a personal thank you for being such a supportive group, we have enjoyed working with you.

Your health and well being is important to us, please do find time to practice in your spare time. We will email exercises and tips during the coming weeks. We encourage you to stay safe and look forward to hearing from you soon.

Please share any of your drawings on our Twitter, Instagram or Facebook and we will like and comment

Welcome To Life Drawing East. We believe life drawing should be fun, accessible and expressive. Drawing from the figure is a classic, traditional skill and these tutored life drawing classes are ideal for those wanting to learn and improve, build a portfolio or for beginners who would like to just have a go.

I offer the opportunity for you to join weekly classes, private 1 to 1’s, parties, and can design the session to fit your requirements. The groups are relaxed and friendly and artists of all abilities are more than welcome.

Classes are for people of any skill level and experience who want to practice as well as beginners.

You will develop observational skills through the use of a life model. This is an intensive study of the human form.

All abilities welcome with beginners are guided through 6 week drawing course.

In order to ensure that you make the best possible progress on your course, you will have regular feedback from your tutor, in a constructive and supportive environment.

By the end of the course you will be able to:

  • Draw using line, mass, mark making, brush and tone, in a variety of speeds and mixing media;
  • Work with greater awareness of drawing and painting the form;
  • Paint with a limited palette;
  • Mix colour to create space;
  • Develop confidence and an individual vision without feeling daunted by technique;
  • Meet like minded people who simply love to draw and join our social facebook group
