 Life drawing evenings at the Guild are always popular and productive occasions, and we hold a variety of different classes throughout the month. Each is designed to help our members improve their abilities in a relaxed and inspiring environment, as well as provide an opportunity for them to exchange views and broaden their artistic knowledge.

First Thursday of the month – quick poses

The first hour is given over to short (5-20 minute) poses providing members with the chance to express themselves through free-flowing work which captures form through spontaneous mark-making.
The second hour is one continuous pose.

Second Thursday of the month – 2 poses

The models’ dynamic poses provide a wonderful opportunity for members to really explore their styles 

as well as improve their technical ability.

Third and Fourth Thursdays

One pose held for two hours to allow members to develop a piece in full.

Members who attend these life classes work in whichever medium they prefer to bring along with them. So whether you enjoy using acrylics, pastels, charcoal, sketching pencils, or something altogether different, you’ll really feel at home, and of course, you’ll find there’s always a wide variety of styles on show to discuss and consider.

All classes start at 7.00pm prompt and go on until 9.00pm,
and the cost per session is £4.00.
