Studio Bee has a capacity to accommodate 25 people for our life drawing and we’d like to fill it up to make the sessions vibrant, unique and worthwhile. At the moment we have a core of people of 9 who not always can make it. It could happen that sometimes less than 9 people turns up and covering the cost of Studio Bee and the model is not possible. So please, spread the word to people you think might be interested.
Everytime you bring a new friend you’ll get your 6th session free.

I forgot to mention that we have, at Studio Bee, space to store materials: lights, paper, paints, boards and even easles. If you do not want to bring some of these every week, you can leave them with us in this secure space. Not a problem.
As you can see we have a mini kitchen too so we can drink tea and coffe. Please, help yourself.
You are very welcome to bring wine and snacks if you want to. We have glasses you can use.
Just remember to wash what you’ve used afterwards.
