Carracci and the Gods

Life Drawing Salon

Try tutored life-drawing classes in a unique environment. Looking at paintings in the Gallery and working from the nude model in our studio, you’ll experiment with a range of techniques and materials to consider how artists have drawn from the human figure. Booked individually, each session explores a different theme inspired by our world-class collection. Suitable for all levels of ability.

Karly Allen

Karly trained in drawing at the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art (University of Oxford), where her work was centred on the experience of the life room. She received an MA in Art History from the University of London, having studied works on paper including Japanese ink painting and drawings from the Arab world.

In her own teaching and research, Karly has a particular interest in the history of drawing practice and materials, as a context for looking at Old Master paintings. She was formerly Adult Learning Officer at the National Gallery and Education Manager at the Royal Collection, Buckingham Palace.
