Foundation Drawing – Term 4

FOUNDATION DRAWING returns in Term 4!

This class is a 7 week class aimed at complete beginners through to more experienced artist wishing to revisit the fundamentals of drawing.  Students will work with practical exercises so that they develop their understanding and skills in a logical and achievable way.

Please note there is only 3 places available for the night session.




We love anything that encourages drawing, so when Simon from Etchr asked to come and take some photos in one of our life drawing sessions to show their wonderful drawing satchel in action we were totally happy to help out!  Visit their website to see more



A huge congratulations and good luck from The Art Room to…

Long Pose Life Drawing/Painting

LONG POSE LIFE DRAWING/PAINTING returns for a 2 week session – 26th August and 2nd September!

For two weeks the model will take the same pose for four hours. Although untutored Erika Gofton will be there to offer guidance if needed and at the beginning of the first week participants will be given a chance to request demonstrations for the remaining weeks. These classes will be kept to a smaller number so there is room to spread out. Draw, paint or even sculpt! A great opportunity to experiment and try new things.

Places are limited, book your easel HERE.
