These sessions are fun, informal, untutored and open to anyone. While there is always at least one tutor present to supervise, the model leads the class through a range of poses; a few 5 minute warm-up poses, then some 10, 20, and then 45 to finish.

Quick drawing is a great way to practise capturing the essence of a pose, without getting distracted by unnecessary detail. If an artist can capture the pose's gesture and model's basic body-type in just a few well-judged lines, then it's a success!

Drop-in Life Drawing: Quick Poses

Just completed yet another weeks course. This time with Luca, oil portrait painting. Fantastic course at Lara's new home in Clapham. Best course ever, huge fun and will be back as much as possible. I can't recommend this place more.
