Learn this traditional discipline with resident artist Richard Francis Bellin.

Life drawing is the traditional discipline of working from the (usually) naked body. With the tuition of Richard Francis Bellin, this course will give a balance of observational skills and creative experiments, with the time to discover your own directions.

Teaching as a group and encouraging individualism enjoy this immensely rewarding experience. There will be a selection of different models to work from through the course, focusing on different aspects of observation each week.

Everyone will be made to feel welcome and comfortable.
