Creative Labs: Life Drawing 

Practice your life drawing skills and techniques with access to a real life nude model.

Participants will have:

  • Access to a nude model
  • Time to develop your life drawing skills and techniques
  • Access to a comfortable, well-lit workspace

These informal life drawing sessions give artists of all abilities the opportunity to practise using a nude model. The model will work through a series of dynamic poses, then some longer poses to allow participants to produce more detailed work.

Suitable for artists used to self-directed work - these are not tutored sessions.  Participants will bring their own materials, and easels are not provided.

Sessions will take place in Mareel’s Green Room

Suitable for ages 16 years +
