Social Life Drawing

Starting Wednesday 11th September 1900-2100, Social Life Drawing sessions will be taking place every Wednesday at Artisan Space, 195 Lower Richmond Road, SW15 1HJ.
We are excited to introduce weekly life drawing sessions with Social Drawsw15 II
at Artisan Space SW15.

Venue: Artisan & Vine
195 – 197 Lower Richmond Road
Putney, London SW15 1HJ

Starting Wednesday 11th September 2019
Time, 7pm to 9pm.

Come along and enjoy a popular new trend in drawing the human body.
These sessions are untutored and suitable for all levels. No prior experience of life drawing necessary.
The atmosphere is always welcoming and friendly.

We work with both male and female professional life models. Models will sometimes bring props to further help capture and inspire your creative flare.

You will have the chance to experiment with a choice of art materials, allowing you to express your own individual style and develop your confidence in life drawing.

Each session starts at 7pm and is structured to include 1 to 2 min poses, 3 min, some 5 min poses, leading on to 8 to 10 mins and 15 mins.
There is a break mid-way at 8pm and we resume at 8.15/8.20 with 2 x 20 min poses and the session ends at 9pm.
During the break there will be an opportunity for informal social chat with your new artist friends, you’ll have time to grab a drink or have some one-to-one with your host should you feel like some feedback on your drawings.

Basic materials are available to use during the session, such as charcoal, pencils and pastels.
Paper is also available at 20p per sheet.
Or, feel free to bring your own artist sketch pads and materials.

Please let us know if you have any accessibility needs. We apologise, but there is no wheelchair access to the downstairs drawing space.

Number of participants are limited, we would strongly advise emailing to confirm your attendance.
