These workshops are open to everyone, from newcomers who want to take up a hobby through to experienced artists looking to continue their practice and hone their skills. It is not a taught class but encouragement and advice will be given where needed.
Each week we will be working with a nude life model, these may change week to week and will include both male and female life models. Easels, pens, paper, and charcoal will be provided but please feel free to bring your own materials as well.
Workshops will take place 6:30-8:30pm every Thursday evening in the Chapel, York St John University, Lord Mayor's Walk Campus, York.
If you are having issues finding the Chapel please enquire at our Fountains Learning Centre, or see the campus map here.
