Artist Rob Conway returns for our incredibly popular life drawing class with a difference. Part performance, part life drawing, we use creative performers as our models live in the gallery. This time, join Rob as he offers top tips on how to draw an actor.

Our live model will perform and emote responding to the Arts Council Collection - make a request and capture facial responses live! From slow and careful study to quick fire drawing capture, this dynamic drawing session works at your pace.

Come and join us in a warm, relaxed and creative environment with like minded people. Places are limited so pre-booking is suggested in this popular session.

£30 cost per person.  All materials will be provided plus tutor and model. Suitable for ages 16 and above.

Please note that booking is essential.
