In this untutored life drawing class you’ll have the chance to draw from a model all day, starting with quick poses in the morning, building to longer poses after lunch and finishing on another run of shorter poses. The session is open to all abilities & levels of experience and there will be a session leader on hand to offer help and informal feedback.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
The session will start at 10am and you are welcome to arrive from 9:45. When you get to New England House you’ll need to come to the main doors next to the Building Managers Office on Level 3 and call the number on the door to be admitted. Once you’re at the session you’ll need to show a digital or printed receipt as proof of booking, then you’re ready to go! We’ll have several tea breaks over the course of the day and will take a lunch break in the afternoon. Drawing boards, chairs and easels will be provided and you'll need to bring your own drawing or painting materials along.
Here’s what we are doing to protect everybody at Draw:

Here’s what you can do to help protect vulnerable people and keep our sessions open:
- Take a lateral flow test before coming along
- Get fully vaccinated - it is quick, safe and easy
- Please don’t come to the session if you are unwell – you will always get a full refund
- Consider wearing a facemask to protect other people at the session
