Held at The School of Art & Wellbeing, Honiton EX14 9TT
Held the 1st Wednesday each month 
Afternoon: 2-5pm


A friendly life class with a classical approach, teaching the fundamentals in how to capture the figure from life. 

With a focus on improving draughtsmanship & simplifying what you see, this will lead to more sensitive and dramatic responses. 

You will learn techniques to boost your confidence and knowledge of proportion, line, edge, flesh colour and flow of light as well as encouraging you to find your own artistic voice!

Students are welcome to draw in graphite or charcoal & or paint in oils.  

The class combines classical and contemporary approaches, both in the way we start and suggestions for paint palettes for those wishing to work in oils.  To save time on the day, please tint your canvas with a pale grey or burnt Sienna colour.


The classes are very friendly and informative, welcoming students of all levels... Improvers and first timers!  


Group sizes are limited to allow for plenty of 1:1 attention.

Cost: £35 per 3 hour session (to include some drawing materials)

 Tea, coffee & biscuits provided!
