Life drawing salon

These tutored life-drawing classes offer you the chance to develop your creative practice in a unique environment.

Looking at paintings in the Gallery and working from the nude model in our studio, you will experiment with a range of techniques and materials to explore how artists have drawn from the human figure.

Booked individually, each session explores a different theme inspired by our collection. These sessions are designed for all levels of ability.
