Course information

Our Life Drawing workshop is opening again to all existing and new artists. We look forward to seeing you soon!

It’s important for everyone that we comply with government guidelines to maintain social distancing. This means we can enable our artists and life models to confidently enjoy a life drawing class in the safest way possible.

Reduced class sizes means a small increase to the price to ensure our sustainability. The good news is this will increase one-to-one time with the tutor for each artist. We hope you feel we still offer good value for money and will come along and enjoy the workshop!

If classes are cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions, attendees who have booked a place will be given a full refund, or the option to transfer to a later class when restrictions have lifted again.
