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.

Term 3 – Open Studio

The Open Studio class gives you the opportunity to use The Art Room as YOUR studio! You will work independently but with guidance, support and advice and mentoring from tutor Erika Gofton. With lots of space and light you will have your own full size table and easel and use of other equipment available if needed.
 
Term 3 of our OPEN STUDIO sessions begin July 18th! Places are limited, book your place HERE.
