Weekend Life Classes  

3 days painting and drawing  10 – 4pm


Weekend Life Classes

weekend life classes are an opportunity to work from the model for 3 days . Saturday is  an exploratory day with mostly shorter poses lasting  from 2 minutes to 1 hour.  Then   longer poses are chosen for Sunday and Monday.  This gives you the opportunity work for up to 5 hours on paintings or spend the time developing a number of drawings and studies. Tuition will be 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.


The studio is purpose built and very spacious. The lighting is excellent due to a large expanse of roof lights. In terms of equipment studio easels and workstations are provided. Go to this link to see the studio and house.

Drawing by D.Tilley

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,  surfaces and sets of brushes for sale. 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 just drawing.

Included is Lunch and refreshments. Please let us know if you have any special requirements.
