Life Drawing Classes

Life drawing classes are every Wednesday eve from 7pm to 9pm. One week we have short poses ( from 2 minutes up to 15minutes) the next week, with the same model and longer poses (from 15min to 45min). The following week we have a new model and repeat the pattern. We use both male and female models. The models are lit using a professional lighting rig, and we play relaxing jazz music to set the mood. Usually we get a drink from the pub during our mid session break and we meet up in the pub for a drink and a social after the session. The sessions are open to anyone who wants to try life drawing and there is no need to book.
