5 week Course: £105 (£85 for concessions)

This class is fully booked. Please email us if you want to go on the waiting list to be notified in case of cancellations and/or a new course starting.

Life Drawing –  How to begin. Map out a figure simply and then add the detail as you go.  A simple egg shape for the head a rectangle for the torso…

We keep the group numbers low so everyone gets one to one tuition with Sheila during the session.

If you have no or little experience in life drawing and want to learn how to draw the human figure, this is an ideal class for you. We have created a supportive friendly setting where you start to get to grips with

  • proportions of the human body
  • how to measure angles
  • how to use tone and shadow to make your drawing 3D
  • faces, hands and feet
  • how to use colour!

If you want a refresher, or just enjoy a spot of figurative art, you’d be very welcome too. We use a different professional model every week so you get to draw a wide variety of figures. The models strike a series of short and long poses.

Join Sheila Moylan for an enjoyable two hours developing your life drawing skills on a Saturday morning.

Have you ever wanted to try life drawing but feel you haven’t got the skills to even start? We recommend that you sign up for the five week course which comes with useful handouts you can use as reference sheets afterwards.
