What we do
We lead tutored life drawing courses in gorgeous pubs for a relaxed and friendly approach to drawing,
with all drawing materials, stand-up easels, professional tuition and a variety of models provided.
We welcome all levels from complete beginners to advanced artists,
so come and join us for a lovely drink and a draw.
Where we are
What you will learn
We teach traditional techniques of draughtsmanship alongside alternative approaches and experimental exercises, with a focus on personal feedback and friendly guidance. Our thoughtfully structured sessions have a different theme and model each week, and are designed to be enjoyed in an easy-going pub environment where participants are encouraged to make mistakes and have fun with drawing.
What will I need to bring to the classes?
Nothing - all easels, papers and drawing materials will be provided
I've never really drawn before, does this matter?
We welcome all abilities and no experience is necessary, even if you don't have an arty bone in your body. Come on down to try something new in a relaxed and supportive environment where you are encouraged to make mistakes and experiment
As an experienced artist, will I be patronised?
The salon provides one on one feedback to push students at all levels, though if you would prefer to be left to practice on your own accord you will be given all of the space you require
Do I need to book in advance?
You can drop in to any class without booking, but booking ahead will guarantee your space - overcrowding does occur and late comers may not get a spot. Booking online is discounted, with further discounts available for multiple bookings
Can I bring my friends?
The more the merrier, though advanced booking is advised to avoid disappointment
I forgot to bring cash or pay in advance, do you take card?
Unfortunately we can't take card, but you can pay on the night online via paypal below (£15 plus 75p paypal fee)
