Life Drawing - Summer 22

Wednesday 27th Apr 2022 — Friday 8th Jul 2022, The Lookout Studio, The Base

Life drawing is the traditional discipline of working from the (usually) naked body.

This course will give a balance of observational skills and creative experiments, with the time to discover your own directions. Teaching as a group and encouraging individualism enjoy this immensely rewarding experience. There will be a selection of different models to work from through the course, focusing on different aspects of observation each week.

Everyone will be made to feel welcome and comfortable.

Duration: 6pm - 8pm

Course dates:
Mondays, 27 Apr - 25 May & 8 Jun - 6 Jul
Fridays, 29 Apr - 27 May & 10 Jun - 8 Jul

Face Coverings

We kindly request that all visitors where face coverings when moving around the building (unless you are exempt). These can be removed during your session if you feel comfortable. As face coverings will no longer be mandatory, we will not be able to challenge those who choose not to wear one and we ask everyone to be kind and respectful to other visitors and our team.

All tickets must be booked in advance.

There is no need to print or collect a ticket as the team will have a record of those who have booked. Booking for workshops and courses close 24 hours before the start time. Please note we reserve the right to cancel any course or workshop if the minimum numbers are not met. If we are not able to run a workshop you will be informed three working days ahead of the course or workshop start date.
