Previous courses (archive):

Sundays 1.30 - 4.30 pm, November 27th and December 4th  (taught course). FULL

For all drawing abilities, these 3-hour sessions over 2 weeks are structured as follows:

Each session begins with a new focus or teaching. Short poses then allow you to apply this teaching to your drawings.  In the second third of the session, the poses are lengthened in time and finally, in the last hour of the session, a long pose will enable you to work in greater detail.  Teaching is given initially, followed by 1-2-1 support as the poses lengthen in time. 

Tables, chairs and basic drawing boards are available.  Please bring all art materials and paper, plus any refreshments you require.  The course costs £50 and bookings can be made directly through Esther: cawleyesther@gmail.com.

Tables, chairs and basic drawing boards are available.  Please bring all art materials and paper, plus any refreshments you require.  The course costs £60 and bookings can be made directly through Esther: cawleyesther@gmail.com.
