Life Drawing classes for beginners as well as advanced artists. All models are professional life drawing models with years of experience posing for artists and life drawing groups. Classes will be held every second Thursday 7-9pm at the Back Stage Centre at High House Production Park, Purfleet.


Dramatic Lighting Figure Drawing with Professional Life Models

In the quiet town of Purfleet, every second Thursday 7-9pm, fine artists will host a Life Drawing Session not to be missed. The focus of these sessions is to create a friendly, relaxed atmosphere and to welcome new and experienced artist to enjoy two hours of figure drawing. We chose experienced life models, with a mix of genders and ethnicities to enable a seamless and interesting drawing experience. This will be an informal class where no experience is necessary. These drawing sessions are a great way to unwind, improve your life drawing skills and mingle with fellow creatives!

Materials such as paper, charcoal and pencils will be available at a small cost. Please bring any materials you might want to work with/experiment with. If you have a problem sitting for long periods, there will be a couple of easels if you would rather stand and draw.

Suggested materials:

Paper or sketchbook

eraser, putty eraser

Since we are working with dramatic lighting, to create more depth and shadows within the figure, feel free to experiment with black paper (and a white material/pencil/charcoal). An artist will give a demonstration of adding and lifting techniques, which give great chiaroscuro results.

Light refreshment during the 15min interval.

Fully equipped building with facilities.

Over 18s only.
