A new 2 and a half hour tutored studio session centred around a set brief which artists will explore over two sessions. Working with a professional model (who will be posing both nude and / or clothed),  discover and explore fresh and exciting ways to draw the human body as we take inspiration from a particular artist, art movement, technique or medium.

Each session will include practical tips on ways to start, amend or enhance your drawings with expert tuition on hand to help you develop your ideas and work further.

Whilst the sessions will be centred around drawing, you can also respond to the set brief using collage or paint using watercolours or acrylic (please provide your own painting kits). Please note, due to venue restrictions, oil paints are not permitted.
