Organised by The Big Draw
Come join Jake Spicer in this playful, introductory life drawing session suitable for all abilities!
You'll have an opportunity to embrace colour using pencils and pastels provided by Derwent and also take home a collection of drawing materials to start you on your creative journey.
Jake Spicer, author of Figure Drawing, will start the session off with quick-fire drawing exercises, followed by a variety of longer poses in which you'll have the chance to draw as you like with individual input from Jake. You'll be drawing a Life Model in this two hour session, capturing their form on paper and developing your observational skills.
This is a paid in-person event. Tickets are priced at £10, plus a small booking fee.
Materials will be provided however, feel free to bring your own materials should you wish. The session will run from 6:30pm -8:30pm with maximum availability for 15 people. This is a great opportunity to improve your drawing skills, get some one on one advice from the master, Jake Spicer and learn to draw with more confidence.
The location of this live session is The Coningsby Gallery, London. There will be hand sanitiser and face masks available for use. The space also has an air purifier and we ask those with any COVID symptoms not to attend the session for the safety and wellbeing of others. On the day of the event we do ask you to show a team member at the door a Negative LFT (photo of the test acceptable) to be allowed into the venue.
