I’ve thought in organising another Sunday for enjoying of long poses on the 28th July at Studio Bee 11am-2pm. This time the model will be a man. Let me know if you’d be interested. You can also book in advance via PayPal
Come alone, with friends or family.
Basic materials will be provided, but bring your favourites to work on your style or new materials to experiment with new avenues of creation.
This July we’ll be exploring very different kind of bodies. I’ve invited a range of people that perhaps have never posed before but that we never have drawn these bodies in our class before neither… and what characters! All middle age to change for a while.
the last Tuesday we’ll have a middle age couple posing for us too!
Our long poses session will be the the 28th of Sunday of July 11am-2pm in Studio Bee as well. Put in your diery if interested.
Hope to see you there

after running a private life drawing class for a programme for ITV, I’ve decided to model for our session this Wednesday.
You all know I am very picky and sometimes hard with models. I see models doing the same poses again and again. Models who, perhaps, are not aware on how the human body has been represented by artist over history.
I’ve decided to model and portray those styles that I like most, from the Classical era to the most contemporany. Expect extremely delicate poses along with the more complex and depth.
This Wednesday 3rd of April
6.30pm – 8.30pm

Materials, Wine & Cheese provided
£10 / £8 students and concessions. Models free!
Hope to see you there
