Weekend Life Classes ( 3 days painting and drawing 10 – 4pm)
Weekend Life Classes are an opportunity to work from the same model for 3 days . Saturday is an exploratory day with mostly shorter poses lasting from 2 minutes to 1 hour. Two longer poses are then chosen for Sunday and Monday. This gives you the opportunity work on two paintings for 5 hours each or spend the time developing a number of drawings. Tuition is mostly on a one-to-one basis and tailored to individual needs. Some of those attending will have been before, so it will be a matter of developing their work to a further stage. The course is suitable for all levels and abilities.However some experience with life drawing and painting would be beneficial.

Materials: Without being over prescriptive this is an opportunity to work on a larger scale.If you do not have your own paints there is a communal supply of oil paints which can be used at a small fee of £6 per day per person. Then there are large sheets of paper, ready primed canvases and surfaces and sets of brushes for sale as well. When booking it is best to confer with us about materials and what to bring.
The course will have an equal emphasis on drawing as it does to painting.It is perfectly in oder to spend the 3 days drawing.
Lunch and refreshments are included. Please let us know if you have any special requirements.
You are welcome to book for two or three days. However, priority and discounts will be given to those booking for the full course.
